An electrifying memoir from the acclaimed Nicaraguan writer (“A wonderfully free and original talent”—Harold Pinter) and central figure in the Sandinista Revolution.Until her early twenties, Gioconda Belli inhabited an upper-class cocoon: sheltered from the poverty in Managua in a world of country clubs and debutante balls- educated abroad- early marriage and motherhood.

But in 1970, everything changed. Her growing dissatisfaction with domestic life, and a blossoming awareness of the social inequities in Nicaragua, led her to join the Sandinistas, then a burgeoning but still hidden organization. She would be involved with them over the next twenty years at the highest, and often most dangerous, levels.Her memoir is both a revelatory insider’s account of the Revolution and a vivid, intensely felt story about coming of age under extraordinary circumstances.

Belli writes with both striking lyricism and candor about her personal and political lives: about her family, her children, the men in her life- about her poetry- about the dichotomies between her birth-right and the life she chose for herself- about the failures and triumphs of the Revolution- about her current life, divided between California (with her American husband and their children) and Nicaragua- and about her sustained and sustaining passion for her country and its people.From the Hardcover edition.
