This collection of letters chronicles a remarkable, long-term friendship between two women who, despite differences of religion and ethnicity, have followed remarkably parallel paths from their first adolescent meeting in their native Chile to their current lives in exile as writers, academics, and political activists in the United States. Spanning more than thirty years (1966–2000), Agosín’s and Sepúlveda’s letters speak eloquently on themes that are at once personal and political—family life and patriarchy, women’s roles, the loneliness of being a religious or cultural outsider, political turmoil in Chile, and the experience of exile.
