Thirty years after the publication of the best-seller Like Water for Chocolate comes Tita's Diary, an intimate look at the life of the main character who embodies love, passion and the communication of emotions through food in early 20th Century Mexico. When Tita falls in love with Pedro, she is told that being the youngest of three sisters, she will never be allowed to marry as she will have to care for her mother. As the second part of a trilogy, Tita's Diary brings to light a secret that will allow readers to rediscover their own intimacy as they turn page after page of never-before-seen photos, hand-pressed flower arrangements, and recipes that were skipped in the original novel. It's the physical manifestation of Tita's dream: to share her thoughts on love, food and alchemy with the world. This touching tale will plunge readers deep into the universe of Like Water for Chocolate, the captivating story that has known no borders.

As the millions of fans of Like Water for Chocolate know, Laura Esquivel is a romanticist whose novels explore the power of love and the truths of the human heart. She returns to those themes in Swift as Desire, the story of a loving and passionate man who has the gift of bringing happiness to everyone except his own wife. The hero of this novel is Júbilo Chi, a telegraph operator who is born with the ability to “hear” people’s true feelings and respond to their most intimate, unspoken desires. His life changes forever the day he falls deeply and irrevocably in love with Lucha, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy family. She believes money is necessary to insure happiness, while for Júbilo, who is poor, love and desire are more important than possessions. But their passion for each other enables them to build a happy life together -- until their idyll is shattered by a terrible event that drives them bitterly apart. Only years later, as Júbilo lies dying, is his daughter able to unravel the mystery behind her parents’ long estrangement and bring about a surprising reconciliation.

From the author of Like Water for Chocolate comes a richly layered collection of stories, essays, and recipes that delves into affairs of the heart, the spirit, and, of course, the stomach. In this fully illustrated book of musings and memories, beloved novelist Laura Esquivel reflects on the powerful relationships that shape us and the central role of food in them all. With imagination, intimacy, and wry humor, she offers up a banquet of vivid writings and mouthwatering recipes. Between these pages you'll discover warm kitchens; rich, fragrant moles; and loved ones sharing the essential joy of cooking. The women who taught Esquivel to cook approached food with a spiritual reverence--they were, in essence, priestesses and alchemists. Under their guidance, Esquivel learned that there is magic in food and in those who prepare it. This magic is felt when we close our eyes to take that first perfect bite, and it brings flavor to the writings in this beautiful collection. Revised edition: This edition of Between Two Fires includes editorial revisions.

Slender and yet panoramic in scope, historical and yet relevant to current-day concerns, Laura Esquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate has provoked from the outset a divergent range of critical opinions. The essays in A Recipe for Discourse: Perspectives on Like Water for Chocolate represent the novel’s problematic nature in their many diverse approaches, perspectives that are certain to awaken in the reader new ways of approaching the text while challenging old ones. This volume’s ‘dialogue’ format, in which essays are grouped thematically, is particularly effective in presenting such a diverse range of viewpoints. The reader will find herein lively discussion on LWFC as it relates to such themes as gastronomy, superstition, mythology, folklore, the Mexican Revolution, magical realism, female identity, alteration, and matriarchy/ patriarchy. It is the editor’s hope that a diverse readership, from undergraduate students to seasoned scholars, will find this volume engaging and enlightening.

Until, that is, the dishy doctor drives his BMW into an oncoming bus. Convinced that Philip’s bizarre death was no accident, Goldy begins to sift through the dead doc’s unpalatable secrets.
