    Escucha el best seller que encandiló al mundo. Una novela que sabe a clásico. No siempre tenemos a mano los ingredientes de la felicidad. Tita lo había aprendido desde pequeña, cuando crecía en la cocina con Nacha y se le negaba toda posibilidad de vida propia desde su nacimiento.

    The last of 3 daughters, Tita is saddled with a terrible responsibility that tradition carries down: in well-born Mexican families, the youngest daughter must remain unmarried and stay at home to care for her mother in old age. When she falls in love, Mama Elena refuses to bend the rules, and forces Tita to reject her suitor and assume to role of family cook. The result is a clash of wills that brings magic, love, sex, and fabulously good food to a previously unknown level of enjoyment.

    Swift as Desire is Laura Esquivel's (Like Water for Chocolate) loving tribute to her father, who worked his own lifelong magic as a telegraph operator. In this enchanting, bittersweet story, touched with graphic earthiness and wit, she shows us how keeping secrets will always lead to unhappiness, and how communication is the key to love.

He had a gift for hearing what was in people’s hearts, for listening to sand dunes sing and insects whisper. Even as a young boy, acting as an interpreter between his warring Mayan grandmother and Spanish-speaking mother, he would translate words of spite into words of respect, so that their mutual hatred turned to love. When he grew up, he put his gift to good use in his job as a humble telegraph operator
