In this powerfully affecting memoir, Joan Jara, English wife of the legendary Chilean folksinger Victor JAra, who was murdered by the military 1973, vividly describes their meeting and life together. She relives the tumultuous years during which they worked in what became the popular son movement and the euphoria they shared as part of the massive social upheaval that brought Salvador Allende to power. As Victor´s compañera and herself a participant of struggle, Joan Jara writes with a fierce, partisan passion and with extraordinary courage. It is a story as full hope and music and joy and laughter as of bitter disappointment and agony. But most of all it is a love story written with a shining honesty, warmth and directness, as life-giving as Victor Jara´s own Beautiful songs.
