I enjoyed this book which is written in the form of "Magical Realism" comparable to the books of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Donna Flore young and impressionable marries a handsome no good gambler. He gambles all of his money and the money she earns from a cooking school that she establishes. I do not want to give away the plot but it is clever and funny. A very enjoyable read.

I saw this movie in the early '80's. I liked it better as a movie. But maybe SOMEONE will appreciate it as a book.
