Summary
"From the Chicago neighborhoods where she grew up and set her groundbreaking The House on Mango Street to her abode in Mexico, in a region where "my ancestors lived for centuries," the places Sandra Cisneros has lived have provided inspiration for her now-classic works of fiction and poetry. But a house of her own, where she could truly take root, has eluded her. With this collection--spanning nearly three decades, and including never-before-published work--Cisneros has come home at last."--

Summary
In A House of My Own, award-winning Chicana author Sandra Cisneros compiles essays and lectures into her autobiography. Some of her vignettes were previously published, but have new contextual comments here. Noting that the presence of a typewriter constitutes "home," she reflects on places she's lived, the meaning of home, and how it relates to her fiction and poetry. By turns funny, poignant, and contemplative, this memoir brings the author to life, presenting a woman you're sure you've met before. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
