In her latest book, the novelist, memoirist, and literary critic turns her diverse skills to biography, recounting the heroic life and epic achievements of Simón Bolívar (1783-1830). The Great Liberator of South America, Bolívar, born into a Basque family in Caracas, freed six countries from the Spanish (including, of course, Bolivia). Arana’s prodigious research considers her subject’s many facets, from military strategist to diplomat to writer.
