Summary
Publisher Annotation: Like water for chocolate, one of the most endearing novels of all time, changed Mexican literature. My past black continues with this story. My past black, continuation of Como agua para chocolate, is a defense of female independence, and the best recipe against the evils of our days: uprooting, obesity and empty consumerism. Maria, addicted to food, suffers the unjust end of her marriage, in the midst of an avalanche of racist and sexist reproaches. Discarded, she receives from the hands of Lucia, her long-absent grandmother, Tita's diary. Upon entering it, she will discover unsuspected family secrets, the ability of the human spirit to fly high thanks to the alchemy that transforms natural ingredients into food and a sense of belonging never experienced. The voice of Maria, of the same warrior race of the De la Garza women, will continue weaving the family saga. The protagonist must overcome the subsidiary potholes, while gaining confidence in herself. This process will lead her to create an unbreakable connection with Tita and all her ancestors, and thus achieve the reconciliation of body and mind. A rebirth to life. But the real dilemma will be when Maria experiences again the deepest of feelings: love. My past black is a novel that will not leave anyone indifferent, the epic of several generations of free and passionate women who teach us to overcome adversity. Como agua para chocolate series, Mexico, Ill., 224pp
