Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The House on Mango Street, Sandra Cisneros, 19[84], United States, SHORT STORIES

"...Right off she says she can't remember all the houses they've lived in, but "the house on Mango Street is ours and we don't have to pay rent to anybody, or share the yard with the people downstairs, or be careful not to make too much noise, and there isn't a landlord banging on the ceiling with a broom. But even so, it's not the house we thought we'd get." Esperenza's childhood in a Spanish-speaking area of Chicago is described in a series of spare, poignant, and powerful vignettes..."

(J.L., p. 253)
