From the acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street comes a story collection of breathtaking range and authority, whose characters give voice to the vibrant and varied life on both sides of the Mexican border. From a young girl revealing secrets only an eleven-year-old can know to a witch woman circling above the village on a predawn flight, the women in these stories offer tales of pure discovery, filled with moments of infinite and intimate wisdom. Translated from the English by Liliana Valenzuela.
"A stunning collection...enjoy it, revel in it."
--Los Angeles Times
"Sandra Cisneros knows both that the heart can be broken and that it can rise and soar like a bird. Whatever story she chooses to tell, we should be listening for a long time to come."
--Washington Post Book World
"These stories about how and why we mythologize love are revelations...a truly wonderful book."
