Final Jeopardy Answer

The Final Jeopardy Answer is: Isabel Allende

Final Jeopardy Explanation

Chilean author Isabel Angélica Allende Llona has been called “the world’s most widely read Spanish-language author”. Allende is known for his novels like The House of the Spirits (La casa de los espritus, 1982) and City of the Beasts (La ciudad de las bestias, 2002).

According to the Wall Street Journal, she frequently changed the dialogue and resolutions to make the heroines seem smarter when she was a young woman translating English romance novels into Spanish in Chile. She lost her job for altering the heroines’ dialogue without permission to make them sound smarter and for changing the Cinderella ending to give the heroines more independence and the opportunity to better the world.
