Isabel Allende wrote "The house of the spirits", "Eva Luna" and some others.
The writter of "Like watter for chocolate" is Laura Esquivel, a mexican woman who was married with Alfonso Arau, the director of the movie with the same name. Some feminist here think that Arau get advantage of the book of Laura, and when the movie was succesfull he let her dawn. Arau would never had succesfull if Laura haven´t appear in his "stupid" life.
About Anais, some critics said that Delta of Venus is a portrait of the relationship she had with her father.
You´re right Tropic of Cáncer is one book, andTropic of Capricornium is another different.
Miller has a trilogy of novels too: Sexus (one novel), Nexus (another novel) and Plexus the last novel, and they conform the "Pink Crucifixion". I haven´t read too much about miller, but I know he is a very important part of a style of writters in the post war .
I´m happy too to have a friend like you. I have to do a lot of things in the mornings: go swimming, prepare the breakfast and food for my Dad, Go to another comercial activities and finally go to work, but my pourpose is read at least one book every month, and I know I could read even more.
