Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
La Casa en Mango Street ha dado voz a todos los que hemos hecho de Estados Unidos nuestra casa, pero sin olvidar de donde venimos… un libro inolvidable e indispensable".
—Jorge Ramos

“Un clásico… Una de las raíces principales del gran florecimiento de la literatura hispana en Estados Unidos. Esta pequeña obra se ha labrado a sí misma un gran espacio en la estantería de la literatura de Estados Unidos”.
—Julia Álvarez

“Cisneros ha sabido explotar su rica herencia [hispana]… y nos seduce con su prosa sobria y precisa, y con la creación de personajes inolvidables que querríamos hurtar a sus páginas. Cisneros no sólo es una escritora talentosa sino absolutamente esencial”.
The New York Times Book Review

“Profundamente conmovedora...encantadora y tierna.... Como la mejor poesía, abre las ventanas del corazón sin una palabra malgastada.”
Miami Herald

“Sandra Cisneros sabe que el corazón se puede romper, y que también puede alzarse y volar como un pájaro. Cualquier historia que ella decida relatarnos, debamos de seguir escuchándola por mucho tiempo.”
Washington Post Book World

“Poética y perspicaz...la prosa fragmentada de Cisneros evoca los sueños y las memorias de sus personajes —y es testigo de su extraordinario talento.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

    An absolute JOY to Read!

    This book is simply a joy to read. You feel as though you're experiencing everything that Esperanza is experiencing. Sandra Cisneros is a marvelous novelist (as she is a poet) and all of her talent comes rushing through in this novel. Once you begin reading, you will not be able to stop!

    Muy Bien

    I loved this book from the moment I read the first page. I could relate to it on so many levels. I read it in Spanish first and then in English, and I can truely say that it is one of my favorite books ever. Esperanza's experience were so real. I could relate being of Latin American decent. It is a very heartwarming book. If you want a good read, pick this book up, whether you read it in Spanish or English you will get the full affect.

    The House On Mango Street

    I didn't like this book. This book was the worst book Ihave ever read. The book was about nothing. There was no plot to the story at all.

    Una vida entera en pocas palabras!

    Si deciendes de una clase pobre y eres Hispano, te aseguro que conoces a muchos de los personajes en este libro. Es una lectura maravillosa sin malgasto de palabras.
