FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpg Isabel Allende wrote her latest novel as an "exorcism." The heroine of Maya's Notebook (Harper) is a troubled teenager, who seeks refuge from the demon of addiction on a remote Chilean island, but she is also a symbol: for a host of social ills in post-socialist Chile and present-day America. Allende discusses the literature (and folklore) of the exile, the family, and the addict.
