Beyond the Ties of Blood: A Novel A reading by Florencia Mallon

Florencia Mallon draws on her position as both a Chilean-American and historian to add realism and depth to her fictional account of one woman's struggles under the Pinochet dictatorship. In the political aftermath of the 1973 Chilean coup, Eugenia Aldunate is imprisoned and tortured. Her lover, Manuel, is savagely killed. While still in the torture camp, Eugenia discovers she is pregnant and is exiled to raise her daughter alone, forbidden to return. Nearly twenty years after her exile, Eugenia is called back to Chile to testify in Manuels case and help seek justice for the others who disappeared. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 18, 2012
