Evita : The Real Life Person - 96 edition

Evita : The Real Life Person (ISBN10: 0393315754; ISBN13: 9780393315752)
ISBN13: 978-0393315752
ISBN10: 0393315754

Summary: "[The authors] have separated out the truth from the sinner/saint legend of Eva Perón--and, most impressively, produced a work of great political sophistication. . . . Factual, nuanced, and absorbing." --Kirkus Reviews


The story begins in a dusty village lost in the Argentine pampas, where a girl, born out of wedlock, scrambles her way to the capital city by the time she is fifteen. It ends with the embalmed corpse of Eva Perón
being hidden away by nervous politicians for fear that if the working people of Argentina knew where it was buried, it would inspire them to revolution.

In between Eva Perón became first the actress Eva Duarte, then the mistress of Colonel Perón, then, in October 1945 after the "shirtless ones" had swept Perón into office, the president's wife. In the colorful, tumultuous setting of postwar Argentina, she wielded a power--spiritual and practical--that has few parallels outside of hereditary monarchy. She was literally idolized by millions but was hated and feared by many as well. She became Evita, the legend.

Nicholas Fraser has worked as a journalist for The Times (London), the Sunday Times (London), and the BBC. Marysa Navarro is a professor of history at Dartmouth College and has published a number of articles about Evita and Perónism.

The life that inspired the major motion picture starring Madonna.
"A fascinating, frightening, straightforward look at the way a private mythology integrated a public personality."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"The Fraser/Navarro biography is the first convincingly researched and historically accurate account. . . . Engrossing narrative style."--Library Journal
