The Inhabited Woman
Ilan Stavans, Series Editor | Irene Vilar, Associate Editor
"A passionate story of love, courage, solidarity, and death."
Lavinia is accomplished, independent, and fiercely modern. She is also sheltered and self-involved, until the spirit of an Indian woman warrior enters her being. Then she dares to join a revolutionary movement against a violent dictator and finds the courage to act.
Gioconda Belli was in the Nicaraguan underground resistance against the Somoza regime and later worked in the Sandinista government. She lives in Managua and Los Angeles.
