"It's not always that a luscious writer can be a luscious reader of her own work.  This must be the voice she hears in her head when she writes her magical prose."
-Julia Alvarez, author of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents

Listen as Sandra Cisneros brings to life The House on Mango Street, her greatly admired novel of a young girl growing up in the Latino section of Chicago.  Acclaimed by critics, beloved by children, their parents and grandparents, taught everywhere from inner-city grade schools to universities across the country, and translated all over the world, it has entered the canon of coming-of-age classics.
The House on Mango Street tells the story of Esperanza Cordero, whose neighborhood is one of harsh realities and hard beauty.  Esperanza doesn't want to belong - not to her rundown neighborhood, and not to the low expectations the world has for her.  Esperanza's story is that of a young girl coming into her power, and inventing for herself what she will become.

This timeless classic is now available, for the first time, unabridged.  And what makes this a particularly special audio production is the fact that the author, Sandra Cisneros, reads.
