Jara was a very popular singer, Allende suporter and social activist who was murdered [shot 44 times] under the Pinochet regime in 1973. "Written with passionate devotion by his widow, Joan Jara, this is an intensely moving account..A love story, an epic tragedy, but written with the Jaras' shared faith that good can yet come out of evil." [Peggy Ashcrocft, dust jacket blurb].
