From the author of The House on Mango Street, a richly illustrated compilation of true stories and nonfiction pieces that, taken together, form a jigsaw autobiographyÃ¢ÂÂan intimate album of a beloved literary legend.
From the Chicago neighborhoods where she grew up and set her groundbreaking The House on Mango Street to her abode in Mexico in a region where Ã¢ÂÂmy ancestors lived for centuries,Ã¢ÂÂ the places Sandra Cisneros has lived have provided inspiration for her now-classic works of fiction and poetry. But a house of her own, where she could truly take root, has eluded her. With this collectionÃ¢ÂÂspanning three decades, and including never-before-published workÃ¢ÂÂCisneros has come home at last.
Ranging from the private (her parentsÃ¢ÂÂ loving and tempestuous marriage) to the political (a rallying cry for one womanÃ¢ÂÂs liberty in Sarajevo) to the literary (a tribute to Marguerite Duras), and written with her trademark lyricism, these signature pieces recall transformative memories as well as reveal her defining artistic and intellectual influences. Poignant, honest, deeply moving, this is an exuberant celebration of a life in writing lived to the fullest.
