Still not sure how to put this in words! Except thank you to so many of you who were a part of making this happen. Semi-finalist for PEN/Bograd Weld Prize for Biography. Among an amazing group. #gracias a la buena onda #PENAwards #pabloneruda

Four months of wonder with this wondering being out into this world. So grateful to all and thankful to so many of you here for its soul-affirming response--the tales of people learning from it, being moved by it, feeling enriched by it, even maddened, at parts, by it...

If you are still interested in checking it out, or getting a copy for a friend, please visit www.markeisner.net for more information. Also contact me for possibilities of signing personal copies for a limited amount of time.

Some of the first review highlights and blurbs from writers:

“Eisner brings alive Latin America’s greatest poet... Empathetic but unflinching when occasion calls for criticism, Eisner weaves his subject’s stanzas that resonate with the poet’s personal stories...A definitive biography and instant classic.”
— Library Journal

"Eisner's exacting and evocative prose will compel readers through each stage of the poet's life. [The] new standard-bearer among Neruda biographies."
— Booklist 

“Efficient and moving... [Eisner's] descriptions are poetry themselves...”
— Publishers Weekly

"Neruda: The Poet's Calling unfolds as a masterful weave of biography, literary criticism and cultural history, a scrupulous portrait of a genius as vast and contradictory as the continent he loved." — The Barnes & Noble Review

"Mark Eisner's definitive biography of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda reads like a beautifully written novel: attentive to scene, momentum, and rich with evocative details.”
— Cristina García, Dreaming in Cuban

"This extraordinary account of Neruda’s life is not just for readers of poetry—it will tempt even those who don't normally read poetry to dive into the magic of Neruda."
— Gwen Kirkpatrick, Chair, Dept of Spanish & Portuguese, Georgetown

 

"This book is an astounding accomplishment, an essential text, and a terrific joy to read.”
— Carolina de Robertis, The White Mountain



“What particularly commends the book is its mise-en-scène—the wider worlds of art, nature, politics, and social justice in which Neruda moved. A spirited and satisfying journey.”
— Marie Arana, Bolívar: American Liberator
