La Casa En Mango Street

La Casa En Mango Street Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrado desde su publicación inicial como el relato clásico de una muchada del barrio latino de Chicago, La casa en Mango Street has sido elogadio por los críticos, acogido por los niños y sus padres y abuelos y estudiado por todas partes, desde escuelas primarias en las grandes ciudades hasta universidades por todo el país. Ahora por primera vez en una edición en español, traducido por una de las más reconocidas figures literarias de México, La casa en Mango Street está a la disposición de los miles de lectores latinos a quien este libro ha dado voz.

A veces desgarrador, a veces intensamente alegre, La casa en Mango Street relata la historia de Esperanza Cordero, en cuyo barrio conviven realidades crueles y una belleza severa. Esperanza no quiere pertenecer–ni a su barrio ni a las bajas expectativas que el mundo le ofrece. La historia de Esperanza es la de una joven intentando alcanzar su propio poder e inventar su propio futuro.
