The Country Under My Skin: A Memoir of Love and War

by Gioconda Belli - £14.99  Bloomsbury (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747558996 | ISBN 10: 074755899x

Acclaimed Nicaraguan writer Gioconda Belli may have grown up as a pampered high-society girl, but her increasing awareness of social inequalities prompted her to join a revolutionary movement, and to serve, and then lead, their underground resistence. Her passionate and dangerous double life meant she was hiding political pamphlets as much as she was hiding her love affairs. This astonishing memoir is a unique account of the Nicaraguan revolution, of meetings with Fidel Castro and exile in Costa Rica, and it is the tale of political and romantic awakening as Belli learnt to fight against the shackles of society.
