Edition Details:

Language: English

Blurbs:
  • "Her triumphant, earthy shout is about life as the multifaceted women in her stories live it....Cisneros's prose is the kind you can taste and feel: the dusty summers of San Antonio, the colors and sounds and flavors of life in full bloom. The voices in her stories are uniquely Chicana: The emotions they evoke are universal....Woman Hollering Creek offers a gift to the uninitiated, the chance to taste deeply of Hispanic culture while accompanied by a knowing and generous guide." Houston Chronicle
  • "One of the more original and refreshing voices to emerge on the fiction scene in recent years...a natural writer whose unrestrained, subtly accented, and light-as-a-feather prose distinguished her new book." San Francisco Chronicle
