Author: Sandra Cisneros
Genre: Short Stories, Feminism, Fiction
Synopsis: (from Goodreads) A collection of stories, whose characters give voice to the vibrant and varied life on both sides of the Mexican border. The women in these stories offer tales of pure discovery, filled with moments of infinite and intimate wisdom.
Review: I knew I’d like this book walking in because I adore Sandra Cisneros and I wasn’t disappointed by this book in any way. Cisneros has a way of writing universal truths that force us to slow down and read deeply. I saw myself, I saw my life, and I felt touched. All true books should have this power. If you liked The House on Mango Street you’ll like this one for sure. This is heavier than THOMS in a way I can’t really describe. It’s heart wrenching and gutting in a way I haven’t seen outside Sandra Cisneros. Her writing style makes you feel.
