Editorial Reviews

Review

"Best known as the author of The House on Mango Street, Sandra Cisneros is recognized as one the most important contemporary U.S. writers. In this book, Rivera (English and Latino/a Literature, University of Puerto Rico) examines the ways in which issues of cultural and racial identity are reflected in Cisneros' writing and social activism. Chapters look at Cisneros' creative process when writing novels and analyze her poetry collections, highlighting the distinctions that she makes between the two forms of writing. Rivera concludes with a discussion of Cisneros' role as an activist involved in community affairs, particularly those related to the development of Latino/a lives."

Format: Hardcover
This book is very engaging from the very start and does a masterful job in detailing the life work of Sandra Cisneros. It brings you to the wellspring of current issues surrounding women writers who are shaping our American understanding of liberty, equality, culture, race and gender. It makes a vital contribution in how it describes Cisneros' "creative literary process" as that of a woman rising to meet the challenges of her own day through a Latina/Chicana perspective. An enjoyable, humorous and serious look at women writers of color.
