Amigas: Letters of Friendship and Exile
This collection of letters chronicles a remarkable, long-term friendship between two women who, despite differences of religion and ethnicity, have followed remarkably parallel paths from their first adolescent meeting in their native Chile to their current lives in exile as writers, academics, and political activists in the United States. Agosin and Sepulveda's letters speak eloquently on themes that are at once personal and political and the experience of Exile.
