Brazilian writer, born to Galician immigrants. Her first novel was Guia-Mapa de Gabriel Arcanjo (The Guidebook of Archangel Gabriel), written in 1961; it concerns a protagonist discussing Christian doctrine with her guardian angel. In the 1970s she became noted for erotic novels A casa de paixão (The House of Passion) and A força do destino (The Force of Destiny), written in 1977. In 1984 she perhaps had her greatest success with A Republica dos Sonhos, (The Republic of Dreams). The work involves generations of a family from Galicia who emigrated to Brazil. This relates to her own family's experience. She is a former President of Academia Brasileira de Letras (Brazilian Academy of Letters).

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes Ascendant sign from her in "The Territory of My Imagination" by Nélida Piñon, World Literature Today, 1 January 2005 (Volume 79; Issue 1), p. 10: "I am a Taurus, and my rising sign is Sagittarius." When the sign of the ascendant is given but no time or degree of that sign, Scholfield's policy is to calculate the chart for the middle degree (15°) of the sign, therefore 7.25pm gives 15 Sagittarius on the ascendant.
