She made her living selling words. . . . Her prices were fair. For five centavos she delivered verses from memory, for seven she improved the quality of dreams, for nine she wrote love letters, for twelve she invented insults for irreconcilable enemies. She also sold stories, not fantasies but long, true stories she recited at one telling, never skipping a word. . . . It seemed to her that selling words would be an honorable alternative. From that moment on, she worked at that profession, and was never tempted by any other.

— Isabel Allende, The Stories of Eva Luna, 1991
