by Pablo Neruda

Hardcover, 1977




New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1977.


MEMOIRS is as full of Neruda's passionate, volatile and profoundly generous personality as lovers of his poetry would expect. Lorca, Vallejo, Picasso, Gandhi, Mao Tse-tung, Castro and Allende all appear here too, making Neruda's a life story of truly universal reach and significance, as well as the richest account we have of Latin American history, politics, art and literature.

Finished this a about a week ago. What a beautiful memoir. One of the refreshing aspects of it is that it's not totally linear account of Neruda's life, but more a chain of vignettes that seem to accidentally come in chronological order.
