One of the most famous is Isabel Allende, the Chilean writer who lives in San Francisco, California and is married to an Anglo American writer of crime stories or detective stories. She wrote such novels translated into English such as: Daughter of Fortune,The House of the Spirits, Paula--Paula moved me a lot. It is about her daughter who in her twenties fell ill and slipped into a coma for a year before dying. During that year, Isabel Allende would read to her and speak to her about everything, family stories, her past, and all that she could tell her daughter hoping to be able to bring her back to life, it was a type of catharsis for her and it is so moving, I cried many days after finishing her book. It is really about loss, and how we lose loved ones,and we feel pain and grief, and break apart spiritually losing them. Her daughter was gone, and yet the process of remembering Paula kept her alive. It is a very, very beautiful book.

Requiescat in pace, uncle Cowboy Donley! (Born July 26, 1927--died June 28, 2020.)
I have only one Spanish book. It’s called “Cuentos de amor de locura y de muerte” (Stories of love of madness and of death), by Uruguaian short-story writer (among others) Horacio Quiroga. As the title shows it’s quite sinister. (I know this because I read the Dutch translation, still need to learn Spanish some day).
