Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER A coming-of-age classic, acclaimed by critics, beloved by readers of all ages, taught in schools and universities alike, and translated around the world—from the winner of the 2019 PEN/Nabokov Award for Achievement in International Literature.

The House on Mango Street is the remarkable story of Esperanza Cordero, a young Latina girl growing up in Chicago, inventing for herself who and what she will become. Told in a series of vignettes-sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes deeply joyous-Sandra Cisneros' masterpiece is a classic story of childhood and self-discovery. Few other books in our time have touched so many readers.

“Cisneros draws on her rich [Latino] heritage ... and seduces with precise, spare prose, creat[ing] unforgettable characters we want to lift off the page. She is not only a gifted writer, but an absolutely essential one.” —The New York Times Book Review

We must never forget where we come from!

I love this book. This is the second time that I read it because of the great memories that come to my mind. As a Latin woman, the Three Sisters is one of my favorite chapters because it is very sincere. I feel that many people may be identified with Esperanza, especially those who had been raised in a poor neighborhood or suffered discrimination because of its social and/or economic disadvantages. We must never forget where we come from!
