I would love for the book in my calibre library to have the tags from "The Clothes..." without having to link it to that edition as the correct edition is the one in the 1st link.
I was not sure if the plugin had ways to utilise the information from "original title" to find its way to the 2nd link.

However I realise it is (probably) very much outside the scope of the plugin itself.
It is beyond the plugin, but you can achieve this manually.

Open the metadata editor for the book. In the "Ids" field look for "goodreads:". Record the number that is after this. This is the reference back to the book on Goodreads. Replace this number with number for the English version. From the links provided, this should be "272434". Then press the "Download Metadata" button to fetch the metadata for the English book. After this, replace the Goodreads id with the saved number.

It is a little bit of fiddling, but it will achieve what you want.

Also, if you want to keep references to both editions, one can be saved as a url. For this, add the following to the "Ids" field:

uri:http|//www.goodreads.com/book/show/272434
