Review:

"Sandra Cisneros has written a joyful, fizzy American novel, a delicious subversive reminder that 'American' applies to plenty of territory beyond the borders of the United States....Mostly, CARAMELO is enchanting. Soulful, sophisticated and skeptical, full of great one-liners..., it is one of those novels that blithely leap across the border between literary and popular fiction."

Valerie Sayers, New York Times Book Review, 09/30/2002

Review:

"Cisneros evokes nostalgia without idealizing the past....CARAMELO is about mingled colours and cultures; it takes its colour from skin tone and sweetness and the shade of the shawl Soledad leaves to Lala. The shawl itself is a pervading symbol, a delicate network that connects the future with the past and helps give dignity and beauty to the present. In the end, it does not matter whether it is fiction or journalism; it is an achieved and enjoyable book."

Roz Kaveney, Times Literary Supplement, 12/06/2002
