Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros is semi-autobiographical fiction. It is the tale of Esperanza Cordero, a young immigrant Latina girl. It is an unusual book in that it is written in a series of vignettes, each a page or two long. The vignettes deal with everything from love and family to rape and death. Connecting the dots between the points of the vignettes gives you a picture of Esperanza's life
