ABOUT THE BOOK
A brave new collection of poems from Sandra Cisneros, the best-selling author of The House on Mango Street.
With more than fifty never-before-seen poems, Woman Without Shame is a moving collection of songs, elegies, and declarations that chronicle her pilgrimage toward rebirth, a coming into power that is the gift of living a woman artist’s life. These bluntly honest and often humorous meditations on memory, desire, and the essential nature of love blaze a path toward self-awareness. For Cisneros, Woman Without Shame is the culmination of her search for home—in the Mexico of her ancestors and in her own heart.
