Here are verses, comic and sad, radiantly pure and plainspoken, that reveal why her stories have been praised for their precision and musicality of language.

i recieved this book from a friend in Los Angeles, i live in ireland and had never seen Sandra's work. i wanted to read and re-read this book, i found it beautiful, funny, loving and honest....even if i don't read spanish, but ill get that rectified. if you get it, make sure you leave yourself time to read the whole thing, i know i could not put it down.
