Abstract: 
*Desde Chicago a México, los lugares en los que Sandra Cisneros ha vivido han servido de inspiración para sus trabajos ya clásicos de ficción y poesía. Sin embargo, una casa propia, un lugar en el que realmente pueda echar raíces, en ha eludido. En esta autobiografía al estilo rompecabezas, conformada de ensayos e imágenes a través de tres décadas (algunas nunca antes publicadas), Cisneros ha llegado por fin a casa." *

A Jam Session

Catalog Number: 
z.35
Date: 
2005
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
From the introduction: "A Jam Session consists of nonfiction pieces and short stories set in Chicago and completed within the last six years. May of the entries involve sports. That reflects my belief that one can learn insights about themselves and others through the heat of competition. I hope that these works will provide some inspiration, perspective, or perhaps a chuckle."
