Malinche by Laura Esquivel
I first saw Malinche at Powerbooks, one of the new releases at that time. It cost around P900 or so.
Imagine my delight finding it at P75 bucks! ($1.50)
The cover unfolds into this ancient diorama!
Love the feel of the illustrations! It matches the tone and mood of the novel ;>
Laura Esquivel provides a chapter long tell-all about how she wrote the whole book and the history and myth behind Malinche.
