About The Book

Eva Peron holds mythic status in Argentina and continues to arouse interest abroad, as is evident from such cultural productions as the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and the film by Alan Parker. This study offers a new dimension on her impact on literature (along with that of her husband), by extending the focus beyond the novel.


"In the field of Latin American literature, this book represents an important venture into a lesser-studied area, that of (auto)biography, and breaks new ground in its focus on texts frequently considered to be outside of, or on the margins of, the literary canon. It provides a refreshing look at non-fictional texts and their importance." Dr Claire Taylor, Lecturer in Hispanic Studies, University of Liverpool
