Celebrating the cataclysms of love and mapping the faultlines in the Mexican-American psyche, Loose Woman is by turns bawdy, introspective, lyrical, and funny. 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 spans culture and continents.

"A unique feminist voice that is at once frank, saucy, realistic, audacious. Cisneros unravels her most private thoughts about love, sex, womanhood and her dual cultures."
--Time

"Teasingly erotic...A bard whose literary voice is a deluge of playfulness, naughtiness, heartbreak, and triumph."
--Miami Herald
