Of all the books you have written, do you have a personal favourite ? Does your first book hold a special place in your heart?
The House of the Spirits, my first book, opened the way for all the other books. It was a rare case of unexpected instant success, and that allowed me to continue writing and eventually make a living as an author, which is not easy. So I am specially grateful to this novel, but probably my most cherished book is my memoir Paula.
