About the Author

Gioconda Belli joined the FSLN in 1970 and was in the Nicaraguan underground resistance until 1975 when she had to flee the Somoza regime's secret police and go into exile. During her exile, she participated in several logistical operations. After Somoza was ousted and the Sandinistas came to power, she held government positions but resigned her political appointments to become a full time writer in 1986. She divides her time between Managua and Los Angeles. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
The Inhabited Woman is a thought-provoking book that takes you on an adventure you won't want to end. Lavinia is a Nicaraguan architect "inhabited" by the spirit of Itza, an indigenous warrior killed centuries ago while fighting for her country. With Itza in her blood, Lavinia finds herself torn between her "normal" upper-class existence and her sense of social responsibility, which, together with her love for the revolutionary Felipe, sends her into a new world of danger and heroism. Analysing and challenging social norms of class and gender, The Inhabited Woman is an excellent combination of theory and story that entraps you so that you won't want to put it down.

I read this book after Belli's memoire "The Counrty under my Skin" which I had really enjoyed. While reading "Inhabited woman" I kept thinking I know the story and was kind of reading again her memoire in a novel version with a different ending.

The Inhabited Woman is a beautifully written story. It takes place in an unspecified Central American country. Briefly, it intertwines the story of a modern-day young woman with a woman warrior fighting the Spanish Conquistadores. The spirit of the warrior grows into an orange tree in the woman's yard, and eventually enters her body to share her experience. The story blends romance, revolution, history and spirituality, exploring the role of women in each. One of the most enjoyable books I have read of late.

Format: Paperback
This was the first book I ever read in Spanish and was a magical, captivating read. I was in Guatemala and my Spanish teacher suggested that I could read it over the course of two weeks, which I sincerely doubted at 300+ pages. But, it drew me in and I couldn't put it down -- I was amazed that I could cry from reading a novel in a foreign language. I did have to finish reading it within two weeks, because I didn't own it, and I couldn't buy it at the time in Guatemala (1992) because it was too subversive. I did buy it in a later trip to Mexico, along with other Latin American books. For the woman who asked whether anyone knows where to get the Spanish version -- I'm unwilling to sell, but mine was published in 1989 by Editorial Diana, S.A. de C.V., Roberto Gayal 1219, C.P. 03100, Mexico, DF -- ISBN 968-13-1280-5
