Women Hollering Creek is pretty great too. i can relate to her style of writing. simple and profound. you'll love House.
my friend mentioned that she lives near Cisneros in texas; said she was having a lot of problems with other tenants in her neighborhood. supposedly, Cisneros lives in a rich neighborhood and opted to paint her house hella folkloric. they tried to tell her she was bringing down the property value in the neighborhood. she's having to fight this.
