Synopsis: La princesa de la literatura latinoamericana, está de regreso con la historia el legendario amor entre el conquistador Hernan Cortés y su intérprete, la india Malinalli.

FonoLibro se enorgullece en presentar la nueva novela de la laureada escritora mexicana Laura Esquivel, Malinche, narrada por la laureada estrella mexicana Lucia Méndez.

Cuando Malinalli conoce a Cortés asume que se trata del propio Dios Quetzalcóatl que regresa a liberar a su pueblo. Los dos se enamoran apasionadamente, pero este amor pronto es destruido por la desmedida sed de conquista, poder y riqueza de Cortés.

A lo largo de la historia de México Malinalli/Malinche ha sido conocida por su traición al pueblo indio. Pero recientes investigaciones históricas han mostrado que Malinalli fue la mediadora entre dos culturas, la hispánica y la americana nativa; y entre dos lenguas, el español y el náhuatl.

Lo que Esquivel ha hecho aquí es desafiar la mitología tradicional mediante un retrato muy temperamental del Adán y la Eva de la cultura mestiza, Cortés y Malinalli, con la caída del imperio azteca como telón de fondo. Contada con el lirismo de la tradición cantarina y pictórica del náhuatl, Laura Esquivel nos brinda un mito fundacional de la cultura híbrida del Nuevo Mundo y una extraordinaria historia de amor.

From the Publisher: ACERCA DE LA NARRADORA Lucia Méndez la súper estrella internacional quien ha cosechado éxitos a través de su carrera como actriz, cantante, modelo y empresaria. Considerada una diva e icono del espectáculo por sus triunfos, fue coronada como reina del festival de Viña del Mar, y nominada al Grammy. Junto con Celia Cruz y Cantinflas, Lucía es una de las únicas estrellas hispanas con figura en el museo de cera de Hollywood.
