Maya's notebook A novel

From the author of 'The House of Spirits' - teenage Maya is in trouble. She's an alcoholic, an addict and deeply involved with a criminal gang. How did it all go so wrong? Abandoned by her parents as a baby, Maya has been brought up by her tough grandmother Nini and her gentle grandfather Popo. At school though, teenage Maya finds herself drawn towards the wrong crowd. Before she knows what's happened, Maya's life has turned into one of drug addiction and crime. Things go from bad to worse as Maya disappears into the criminal underworld. To save her from her old associates, Nini sends Maya to a remote island off the coast of Chile. Here she lives among a traditional rural people, the Chilote, who have remained untouched by the materialism of the modern world. Basking in the warmth of the Chiloe community, Maya feels compelled to write her story and slowly she begins to heal. But can she move beyond her pain, find forgiveness and learn to live with the scars of the past?

Po raz kolejny przekonujemy się o sile miłości pokonującej wszystkie przeszkody. Maya, amerykańska nastolatka, mieszka w Berkeley pod opieką swojej chilijskiej babci Nini i jej drugiego męża Popo. Dorasta otoczona ciepłem i miłością, a dziadek staje się dla niej oparciem i największym autorytetem. Jego śmierć zachwieje całym światem Mai, która nie potrafi pogodzić się z tą stratą i zaczyna szukać zapomnienia w alkoholu i narkotykach. Po ucieczce z ośrodka leczenia uzależnień trafia do Las Vegas, a tu ląduje wkrótce w kryminalnym półświatku. Pracuje dla złodzieja, narkomana i dealera, pije, ćpa i stopniowo traci świadomość tego, co dobre i złe. Kiedy w końcu udaje jej się wrócić do babci, ta chcąc ratować wnuczkę przed dawnymi współpracownikami, wysyła ją na chilijską wyspę Chiloe?"

  • "Die neunzehnjährige Maya ist auf der Flucht. Vor ihrem trostlosen Leben in Las Vegas, der Prostitution, den Drogen, der Polizei, einer brutalen Verbrecherbande. Mit Hilfe ihrer geliebten Grossmutter gelangt sie auf eine abgelegene Insel im Süden Chiles. An diesem einfachen Ort mit seinen bodenständigen Bewohnern nimmt sie Quartier bei Manuel, einem kauzigen alten Anthropologen und Freund der Familie. Nach und nach kommt sie Manuel und den verstörenden Geheimnissen ihrer Familie auf die Spur, die mit der jüngeren Geschichte des Landes eng verbunden sind. Dabei begibt Maya sich auf ihr bislang grösstes Abenteuer: die Entdeckung ihrer eigenen Seele. Doch als plötzlich Gestalten aus ihrem früheren Leben auftauchen, gerät alles ins Wanken. "Mayas Tagebuch" erzählt von einer gezeichneten jungen Frau, die die unermesslichen Schönheiten des Lebens neu entdeckt und wieder zu verlieren droht.

September 1973 ging sie ins Exil. 1982 erschien ihr erster Roman La casa de los espíritus(dt. Das Geisterhaus, 1984), der zu einem Welterfolg wurde. Der dänische Regisseur Bille August verfilmte den Roman 1993. Allende arbeitete unter anderem als Fernseh-Moderatorin und war Herausgeberin verschiedener Zeitschriften. Heute lebt sie mit ihrer Familie in Kalifornien. Ihr Werk erscheint auf deutsch im Suhrkamp Verlag."
