"In the phantasmal and delicious world of Laura Esquivel’s Like Water for Chocolate (New York: Random House, 1989), we are treated to moments of epic love and epic heartbreak; scenes of a despotic ghost exploding like firecrackers in the night; a decadent rose-petal sauce hot enough to torch buildings; and a crocheted bedspread large enough to cover acres of land." - Excerpt from PieceWork September/October 2012
