Praise
"Cisneros draws on her rich [Latino] heritage, creat[ing] unforgettable characters we want to lift off the page. She is not only a gifted writer, but an absolutely essential one."
"Esperanza Codera, a girl coming of age in the Hispanic quarter of Chicago, uses poems and stories to express thoughts and emotions about her oppressive environment."
"Sandra Cisneros is one of the most brilliant of today's young writers. Her work is sensitive, alert, nuance-full...rich with music and pictures."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this novel about coming of age in Chicago, Esperanza Cordero grows up in its inner-city slums and resolves to transcend her background.
Editors Note Acclaimed by critics, beloved by children, their parents and grandparents, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, The House on Mango Street is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero. Told in a series of vignettes – sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous – it is the story of a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become. Few other books in our time have touched so many readers.
