Letter from Isabel Allende to Gabriel Garcia Marquez Imaginary Letter from Isabel Allende to Gabriel Garcia Marquez Isabel Allende 5555 Magical Realism Way Sandy Ego, Sandia 32683 Dear Madam Allende: I have recently finished reading your book, House of Spirits, and I am amazed by how much your book mirrors that of my book. Now, I am not mad at you for taking my material and working with it, because many great works have come out of such replicas.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
