About this title

Synopsis:

"Fusion of science fiction and adventure-romance attempts to produce a multimedia 'event' that narrates through comic-strip panels and period music on accompanying CD. New Age tracts, precolumbian poetry, Puccini arias, and tedious plots never achieve narrative coherence in spite of Peden's adequate translation"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.http://www.loc.gov/hlas/After one night of passion, Azucena, an astroanalyst in twenty-third-century Mexico City, is separated from her Twin Soul, Rodrigo, and journeys across the galaxy and through past lives to find her lost love, encountering a deadly enemy along the way

Review:

Mexican novelist Laura Esquivel leapt to international fame in 1993 with Like Water For Chocolate. Her new novel strives to replicate the impact of that work with multimedia innovation in style and structure. This translation by Margaret Sayers Peden comes with a CD of arias by Puccini and Mexican danzones, and 48 pages of striking color illustrations by Spanish artist Miguelano Prado. The text by Esquivel is part science fiction, part new age spiritual journey, as she chronicles the efforts of 23rd century "astroanalyst" Azucena to find her twin soul.
