Annotation:
A memoir by Chicana poet Pat Mora about her colorful Mexican family, both living and dead.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"A lyrical celebration of several generations of a Mexican-American family in El Paso....In a language deftly mingling the natural cadences of speech and precise, poetic imagery, Mora believably summons up both a group of tough, loving, idiosyncratic survivors and a vivid, detailed portrait of life in the southwest in this century." 03/15/1997

New York Times Book Review
"The men of the household are adored, feared and revered, but it is the women who hold things together; their worries, quarrels, prayers, recipes, gardens and fierce love for the children lend 'House of Houses' its rich texture." - Edie Jarolim 06/29/1997

Smithsonian
"[F]or a reader willing to stumble into the Mora family gathering and enjoy the fiesta without worrying too much about who's who, the book's real magic is in its portraits of ordinary people struggling to live ordinary lives." - Paul Trachtman December 1997
