it was amazing

I expected Paula to be wrenching, but what I did not expect was the equivalent of a graduate course in both effective description and the melding of the personal and public. I stopped multiple times in the reading to just sit in awe of the literary skill on display. Allende is a true master who made me feel the anguish of a mother, both for a diseased daughter and a diseased nation. This memoir is a must-read, not just for the story itself, but for its artistic expertise.
