Why revisiting Sandra Cisneros' "Mango Street" is worthwhile

Mango Sandra Cisneros has the coolest cowboy boots I have ever seen. Actually she probably has more than one pair of awesome boots, but I'm talking about the ones with the Virgin of Guadalupe on them. While I am unsure if these are sacriligeous or not - someone more versed in such things will need to sort that out - they are really great, and I am so buying a pair if I win the lottery, although to be fair maybe I need a more Irish saint, like Patrick, or something.

What do the boots have to do with anything? Well, not much. But Cisneros' bestselling The House on Mango Street is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and she's coming to Miami on Tuesday to talk about it. I suppose it's too much to hope she'll wear them.

plus she is the most wonderful and interesting person. did you ask where she got the boots?

Connie

I did not ask where she got the boots because I don't need to know because i WANT THEM. My editor found them online for 3 grand.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
