Like Water for Chocolate Dec 12, 2015

Esquivel's novel, Like Water for Chocolate, was already translated into English in the 90s when the book was first published. Why does Amazon need to translate it yet again? The first translation excellent.

That's not what the sentence says Dec 13, 2015

AmazonCrossing has produced the bestselling Hangman’s Daughter series by Oliver Pötzsch, originally in German, and is currently working on Pierced by the Sun, by Like Water for Chocolate author Laura Esquivel, written in Spanish and due out July 2016.


Pierced by the Sun is a book written by the author of Like Water for Chocolate, and it is Pierced by the Sun which will be translated.
