I feel kind of cheated by this book I m a long time Cisneros fan and I m used to waiting over a decade for her next book and then being blown away I expected this to be a memoir told in stories instead it s a collection of introductions to books and essays she read at various speaking events They are well written and there are some gems but serious life experiences are carefully skirted She mentions lovers and affairs that hurt her but never ever goes into depth about love and sex She repeatedly mentions a year long depression but again never interrogates the wound Her mother and father feel like cardboard cut outs and not fleshed out characters There s a ton of repetition All in all this felt like something thrown together to satisfy a contractual obligation to a publisher not at all a Cisneros masterpiece I ll keep hoping for some fiction or poetry as she remains an idol of mine

Sandra Cisneros s writing is honest and poetic and lacks the self consciousness of someone aspiring to be erudite I mention this because I think for someone who is multi lingual who has read a lot and lived and traveled around the world who graduated from a prestigious writing program and has been lauded with the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship among other awards and honors it seems she could have easily gone in another direction speaking a lot of academese for instance but instead she remains grounded centered in her own voice and its tributaries as well as the aspiration to appeal to people from all walks of life and possibly people who don t read many booksA House of My Own refreshed me from how we are often encouraged to think about writers and writing where the focus is on stamina and discipline and the mechanics of the writing life Or content wise its about revealing the heinous and the struggle to crack the code of whatever is deep and dark and repressed Or whatever the currents are in identity politics so the content of the writing is only approached through the lens of keywords and phrases such as the immigrant experience or the LGBT culture etc or awful things about what it means to be black sigh Very little is said about the dreamer side of being a writer the spiritual aspect the celebratory the love of words and readings and ways to discover meaning and make meaning We see the hyper intellectual or code breaking aspect of writing discussed in ways that exclude huge amounts of people from participating in the joys and revelations associated with the life of the mind I remember how exciting it was for me when I first read writings by bell hooks in the 1990s because despite the clunk and drag of the language she often used she always expressed exuberance about the time she enjoyed alone thinking and dreamingWith A House of My Own Sandra Cisneros inspiringly celebrates houses and homes the houses of spirit the houses of of friendship the houses of refuge houses of work houses of language people and places which have nourished her life her feelings her perspectives and informed her creativity up to this point in timeSubtitled Stories From My Life A House of My Own comprises 40 writings spanning 30 years of stories of Sandra Cisneros s life some of which were first commissioned as lectures essays introductions to her own or other artists works or appreciations and stories she wrote just because Also included are ofrendas for each of her parentsa letter to Gwendolyn Brooksa letter to a parent who wanted to see The House On Mango Street banned Cisneros did not write this critically acclaimed book for children yet it has become reuired reading in many schoolstributes to visual artists other writers the musician Astor Piazzolla and significant booksA House of My Own is printed on good uality paper and includes nearly 100 color and black and white photographs so it has a beautiful keepsake uality to it
