House on Mango Street (Cisneros) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews 
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.
Bebe Moore Campbell - New York Times


Marvelous...spare yet luminous. The subtle power of Cisneros's storytelling is evident. She communicates all the rapture and rage of growing up in a modern world.
San Francisco Chronicle


A classic.... This little book has made a great space for itself on the shelf of American literature.
Julia Alvarez
