      Esquivel invites the reader to re-assess conventional approaches to literature and to experience the pleasure, through flagrant sight-gags, such as when Tita drops the apricots on Pedro’s head (38), and, especially, through the sensorial stimuli—the scents, tastes, colors and textures—induced by food.
