1985 THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS Isabel Allende First American Edition HC Mylar DJ
1985 hardcover THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS by Isabel Allende. It is a First American Edition. The dust jacket is in very good condition and is in a protective mylar sleeve. The binding is sound and there aren't any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog eared pages.
The House of the Spirits weaves together history, feminism, and supernatural beliefs. It is a lusty, passionate Latin melodrama, filled with ghosts, magic, poison and romance. Though the novel has never been officially banned, it has faced several challenges in schools since the time of its publication in 1982, often being characterized as “pornagraphic”, “immoral” and “defaming the Catholic faith”. If you are a collector of banned books, this is one you want on your library shelf.
