Abstract:

A new biography about the groundbreaking author of The House on Mango Street and other works that describe the experiences of women and Mexican Americans. A Home in the Heart: The Story of Sandra Cisneros. Brackett's lively account, one of the first for YAs on this landmark writer, shows Cisneros crossing borders not only as a Chicana traveling between Chicago, San Antonio, and Mexico and as a woman who defies traditional family roles but also as a writer who makes readers think about what it means to be American. Her classic autobiographical novel, House on Mango Street, published 20 years ago, continues to inspire writers everywhere. Along with information on older books, Brackett includes chapters on Cisneros acclaimed poetry and recent fiction and on her role as an activist. Accompanying the view of success is a moving perspective on Cisneros struggle to find her voice and to find a room of her own and the space to write. Full source notes, including references to articles, interviews, and Web sites, will lead readers to more information about the writer who celebrates her wicked, wicked ways.
