    " Absolutely wonderful! All her books are, she's so witty and definitely reminded me why she is my favorite writer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mari | 1/30/2011

    " One of my favorite books of poems... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia | 12/15/2010

    " Empowering, manic, and wicked! One of my all-time favorite authors. Cisneros never fails to satisfy my Chicana hunger. She got me through my roaring 20's. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxanne | 11/4/2010

    " Here is a woman who knows herself, accepting of her flaws and disasters! The craziness of sex and romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 10/24/2010

    " I loved this book. Cisneros' poetry is beautiful. "Los Desnudos: A Triptych" was my favorite, but there was nothing in there that was not beautiful. I spread this out over three weeks after realizing how much I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 8/4/2010

    " I love Cisneros' short stores and I immensely enjoyed The House on Mango Street but her poetry did not grab me. The same rawness and honesty of womanhood that I loved in the above mentioned, I disliked in her poetry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 4/8/2010

    " This collection of poems is by far one of my favorite collections about women and sexuality. They were fabulous!! A bit raunchy at times, Cisneros delivers a solid mass of strong sexual, feminine, Chicana poetry that should be read by all you poets out there. A very quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 3/8/2010

    " Sandra Cisneros is the type of poet I wish I were -- her language is raw yet melodic, intense yet simple. Reading her poems allows me to lose myself in her words only to find myself in their meaning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 LopezAlmaG | 10/17/2009

    " I used this book for my undergraduate thesis. I love her writing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marsha | 8/17/2009

    " I absolutely love how she writes in this collection ... it makes me envious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tasha | 6/7/2009

    " I really liked this book. It reminded me very much of one of my friend's poetry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh | 4/20/2009

    " I should have known when I lent this out, it was never coming back. It's that good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shanna | 4/12/2009

    " These poems had an intense effect on me when I read them in high school (not for class, but after taking a creative writing class that led me to love poetry for a while). Cisneros is a great author, and her poems made me feel empowered, even at 17. "

About the Author
Author Sandra Cisneros

Sandra Cisneros is an American writer best known for her acclaimed first novel The House on Mango Street, and her subsequent short story collection, Woman Hollering Creek and Other Stories. Her work experiments with literary forms and investigates emerging subject positions, which Cisneros attributes to growing up in a context of cultural hybridity and economic inequality that endowed her with unique stories to tell. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and is regarded as a key figure in Chicana literature.
