Woman hollering creek and other stories by Sandra Cisneros( Book )

45 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and German and held by 2,933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of short stories originally published in 1991 that reflect the author's experience of being surrounded by American influences while still being familiarly bound to her Mexican heritage as she grew-up north of the Mexico-US border. The short vignettes focus on the social role of women and their relationships with the men and other women in their lives. The majority of the characters are stereotypes: men embody machismo while women are naive and generally weak. The author focuses on three feminine clichés: the passive virgin, sinful seductress, and traitorous mother. Not properly belonging to either Mexico or America, the Chicana protagonists earnestly search for their identity, only to discover abuse and shattered dreams. Apart from focusing on these issues of struggling females, this work simultaneously develops the readers' sensitivity towards the lives of immigrants

Loose woman : poems by Sandra Cisneros( Book )

30 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A candid, sexy and wonderfully mood-strewn collection of poetry that celebrates the female aspects of love, from the reflective to the overtly erotic. Seductive, earthy, at times confessional, Sandra Cisneros's vibrant new collection of poetry celebrates the female aspects of love - from the reflective to the overtly erotic - in a voice recognizable from her powerful works of fiction. These poems offer narratives as formally elegant as they are emotional and accessible. They are bound together by the voice of one woman, whose language spans cultures and continents. She is a woman who finds great strength from her roots in the barrio, and who knows better than to take herself too seriously, even as she struggles with the anguish of making sense - and making love - in a world she feels compelled to write about. With a multiplicity of moods tumbling through its lines - joyous and introspective, tender and ruthless, self-mocking and sincere, often funny and sometimes wild and rude - Loose Woman offers intoxicating poems of extraordinary insight and vivid imagination

"The word "orphan" might not seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like "a glove left behind at the bus station." What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, "Have you seen Marie?" the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning."--Jacket

La mundialmente aclamada autora de La casa en Mango Street nos brinda un relato profundamente conmovedor acerca de la p?rdida, el duelo y la sanaci?n: una f?bula para adultos l?ricamente narrada y v?vidamente ilustrada sobre una mujer que busca un gato extraviado tras la muerte de su madre.

A medida que Sandra y Rosi peinan las calles de San Antonio--preguntando por todas partes y poniendo volantes-- ¿Has visto a Mar?a? hace gala de la habilidad de esta querida autora de contar cuentos llenos de magia, en un relato que nos recuerda c?mo el amor, aun cuando desaparece, no se pierde por siempre

Puro amor by Sandra Cisneros( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sandra Cisneros has a fondness for animals and this little gem of a story makes that abundantly clear. 'La casa azul, ' the cobalt blue residence of Mister and Missus Rivera, overflows with hairless dogs, monkeys, a fawn, a 'passionate' Guacamaya macaw, tarantulas, an iguana, and rescues that resemble 'ancient Olmec pottery.' Missus loves the rescues most 'because their eyes were filled with grief.' She takes lavish care of her husband too, a famous artist, though her neighbors insist he has eyes for other women: 'He's spoiled.' 'He's a fat toad.' She cannot reject him. ' ... because love is like that. No matter how much it bites, we enjoy and admire the scars.' Thus, the generous creatures pawing her belly, sleeping on her pillow, and 'kneeling outside her door like the adoring Magi before the just-born Christ.' This beautiful chapbook is bi-lingual and contains several illustrations--line drawings by Cisneros herself"--
