Lavinia is The Inhabited Woman: accomplished, independent, and fiercely modern. She is 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—through the power of love—finds the courage to act.

The Wisconsin edition is for sale only in North America.

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.

What People are Saying About This

Harold Pinter

One of the most gifted writers to have come out of Central America in the last ten years...A wonderfully free and original talent.

Salman Rushdie

Her work is a kind of public love poetry that comes closer to expressing the passion of her country than anything I have yet heard.

Fantastic. Great imagery. A book that makes you imagine the scenes and feel as if you are the characters.
