Synopsis

Synopsis

Loose Woman

Seductive, earthy, and at times confessional, Sandra Cisneros's vibrant collection of poetry celebrates the females aspects of love--from the reflective to the overtly erotic--in a voice recognizable from her powerful works of fiction.

These poems offer narratives as formally elegant as they are emotional and accessible. They are bound together by the voice of one woman, whose language spands cultures and continents. With a multiplicity of moods tumbling through its lines--joyous and introspective, tender and ruthless, self mocking and sincere, often funny and sometimes wild and ruse--Loose Woman offers intoxicating poems of extraordinary insight and vivid imagining. And what makes this particularly special audio is hearing the poems recited in the author's own voice.

Woman Hollering Creek and Other Stories

From the author of the widely acclaimed The House on Mango Street comes a story collection whose characters give voice to the vibrant and varied life on both sides of the Mexican border. From a young girl revealing secrets to a witch woman circling above the village on a predawn flight, the women in these stories offer pure discovery. Woman Hollering Creek confirms Sandra Cisneros's stature as a writer of electrifying talent--and hearing the stories in the author's own voice makes this audio even more poignant.
