Kal Ma' Lil-shukulata (Como Agua Para Chocolate - Like Water for Chocolate) Paperback / softback
A highly original novel by one of Mexicos most important storytellers, Kal Maa Lil-Shukulatas chapters each start with a traditional northern Mexican recipe.
Cooking is the exclusive means of expression open to the female protagonist, who does not conform to the limited role that both society and her family have given her.
Tita is trapped in a destiny predetermined at birth: family tradition dictates that the youngest daughter must renounce marriage and devote herself to the care of her mother.
Tita, however, is passionately in love with Pedro, her eldest sisters husband.
