El libro secreto de Frida Kahlo

by F. G. Haghenbeck

Entre los objetos personales de Frida Kahlo había una pequeña libreta negra a la que llamaba "El Libro de Hierba Santa" con su colección de recetas de cocina dedicadas a la Santa Muerte. Esta se exhibiría por primera vez en el Palacio de Bellas Artes con motivo de la fecha de su natalicio. El día que se abrió la exhibición al público la libreta desapareció. F. G. Haghenbeck, uno de los escritores más aclamados en México, se inspiró en este hecho y escribió esta maravillosa novela, la cual trae una vez más a la vida a la famosa artista Frida Kahlo. Haghenbeck imagina que esta libreta fue un regalo de su amante Tina Modotti, después de que Frida sobrevivió al terrible accidente de tráfico que marcó su vida. Desde este punto, Haghenbeck intercala recetas con pasajes vividos por la artista y reconstruye de una forma magistral la tumultuosa pero fascinante vida de Frida Kahlo, desde su romance con el amor de su vida y afamado pintor Diego Rivera, hasta sus relaciones con personajes famosos como Georgia O'Keeffe, Ernest Hemingway y Salvador Dalí, entre otros.

The Secret Book of Frida Kahlo

by F. G. Haghenbeck

When several notebooks were recently discovered among Frida Kahlo's belongings at her home in Coyoacán, Mexico City, acclaimed Mexican novelist F. G. Haghenbeck was inspired to write this beautifully wrought fictional account of her life. Haghenbeck imagines that, after Frida nearly died when a streetcar's iron handrail pierced her abdomen during a traffic accident, she received one of the notebooks as a gift from her lover Tina Modotti. Frida called the notebook "The Hierba Santa Book" (The Sacred Herbs Book) and filled it with memories, ideas, and recipes. Haghenbeck takes readers on a magical ride through Frida's passionate life: her long and tumultuous relationship with Diego Rivera, the development of her art, her complex personality, her hunger for experience, and her ardent feminism. This stunning narrative also details her remarkable relationships with Georgia O'Keeffe, Leon Trotsky, Nelson Rockefeller, Ernest Hemingway, John Dos Passos, Henry Miller, and Salvador Dalí. Combining rich, luscious prose with recipes from "The Hierba Santa Book," Haghenbeck tells the extraordinary story of a woman whose life was as stunning a creation as her art.
