Sandra Cisneros's sweet, wry, Latin-inflected voice is the perfect accompaniment to the true stories that comprise this engaging memoir. The author of the bestselling coming-of-age novel THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET here blends the personal--reflections on her parents' marriage, her adventures on a Greek island while trying to finish a novel--with political commentary and essays on her literary heroes to create an unusual autobiographical quilt. Cisneros has an inviting, quirky tone that encourages listeners to stay--whether for her thoughts on women in Sarajevo or her story of finally abandoning Mr. Wrong. She varies her rhythm and pitch as ably as a professional narrator, and often reads with an audible smile, making us smile too for this moving tribute to life.
