I relished this book of poems. The lines are palpable. I got the sense of the Mexican influence for sure. I could taste the words and feel the loves won and lost. I love the grit and the beauty in her words and the feelings they invoke. Fabulous!
Sanda Cisneros has hit this one out of the park. No one is as adept at making you cry, junp for joy, or scream out in anger. Her lyrical voice begs for attention. Although her Latina heritage peeps through from time to time, this collection is a must for every woman everywhere. So brush up on your Spanish so you dont miss the nuances and hold on tight. This is one ride you should take. All the more exciting because im a man.
