Summary
  • "From the beloved author of The House on Mango Street: a richly illustrated compilation of true stories and nonfiction pieces that, taken together, form a jigsaw autobiography: an intimate album of a literary legend's life and career. 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 "my ancestors lived for centuries," 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 collection--spanning nearly three decades, and including never-before-published work--Cisneros has come home at last. Ranging from the private (her parents' loving and tempestuous marriage) to the political (a rallying cry for one woman's liberty in Sarajevo) to the literary (a tribute to Marguerite Duras), and written with her trademark sensitivity and honesty, these poignant, unforgettable pieces give us not only her most transformative memories but also a revelation of her artistic and intellectual influences. Here is an exuberant, deeply moving celebration of a life in writing lived to the fullest--an important milestone in a storied career"--
  • "A book of essays spanning the author's career a[nd] reflecting upon the various homes she's lived in around the world"--

Summary
In A House of My Own, award-winning Chicana author Sandra Cisneros compiles essays and lectures into her autobiography. Some of her vignettes were previously published, but have new contextual comments here. Noting that the presence of a typewriter constitutes "home," she reflects on places she's lived, the meaning of home, and how it relates to her fiction and poetry. By turns funny, poignant, and contemplative, this memoir brings the author to life, presenting a woman you're sure you've met before. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
