Read full description of the books El país de las mujeres:En las elecciones de Faguas –país imaginario que aparece en las novelas de Gioconda Belli– ha triunfado el PIE (Partido de la Izquierda Erótica). Sus atrevidas integrantes tienen un propósito inclaudicable: cambiar el rumbo de su país, limpiarlo como si se tratara de una casa descuidada, barrerlo hasta sacarle brillo. Pero nada de esto resulta fácil para la presidenta Viviana Sansón y sus ministras, sometidas a constantes ataques por parte de sus enemigos. ¿Podrán sobrellevarlo y sobrevivir? ¿Será Faguas, al final de su administración, un país mejor?
El país de las mujeres es una novela divertida y audaz, por la que la reconocida autora nicaragüense obtuvo el Premio Hispanoamericano de la Novela La Otra Orilla.
Read information about the authorGioconda Belli (born December 9, 1948 in Managua, Nicaragua) is a Nicaraguan author, novelist and poet.
Gioconda Belli, partly of Northern Italian descent, was an active participant in the Sandinista struggle against the Somoza dictatorship, and her work for the movement led to her being forced into exile in Mexico in 1975. Returning in 1979 just before the Sandinista victory, she became FSLN's international press liaison in 1982 and the director of State Communications in 1984. During that time she met Charles Castaldi, an American NPR journalist, whom she married in 1987. She has been living in both Managua and Los Angeles since 1990. She has since left the FSLN and is now a major critic of the current government.
Belli graduated from the Royal School of Santa Isabel in Madrid, Spain and studied advertising and journalism in Philadelphia.
In 1988, Belli's book La Mujer Habitada (The Inhabited Woman), a semi-autobiographical novel that raised gender issues for the first time in the Nicaraguan revolutionary narratives, brought her increased attention; this book has been published in several languages and was on the reading list at four universities in the United States. The novel follows two parallel stories: the indigenous resistance to the Spanish and modern insurgency in Central America with various points in common: women's emancipation, passion, and a commitment to liberation. In 2000, she published her autobiography, emphasizing her involvement in the revolutionary movement, El país bajo mi piel, published under the name The Country Under My Skin in the United States; it was a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in 2003. Belli continues publishing and maintains that poetry is her most important work. Belli was the recipient of the Premio de Poesía Mariano Fiallos Gil in 1972 and of the Premio Casa de las Américas in 1978. In 2008 Belli received the Biblioteca Breve Award for her book El infinito en la palma de la mano (Infinity in the Palm of The Hand), an allegory about Adam and Eve in paradise.
Belli's books have been published in numerous languages.
