The House on Mango Street

Biography

Born in Chicago in 1954, Sandra Cisneros grew up in a large family: two parents and six brothers. She graduated with a degree in English from Loyola University of Chicago in 1976. She earned her Masters of Fine Arts in Writing from the prestigious� University of Iowa Writers' Workshop two years later. She has published numerous novels, short stories, and poems, but remains best known for this work, The House on Mango Street, first published in 1984. "The Chicago-born author's first novel is her most critically acclaimed work. In subsequent works Cisneros would continue to use the simple, almost childlike narrative voice developed here to tell the story of a young Chicana writer" (Chronology of American Literature). Cisneros currently lives in San Antonio, Texas.
