woman hollering creek point of view Last year I read Sandra Cisneros House on Mango Street and felt an affinity toward her as I discovered that she grew up on the northwest side of Chicago and attended the University of Iowa Writers Workshop. Mostly an autobiographical account, Mango Street detailed the coming of age of a Mexican American girl in Chicago. Since debuting with her novella, Cisneros paved the way for a generation of Latin American women who I refer to fondly as las amigas. After moving to San Antonio, Cisneros rose to prominence as a Chicana writer. Woman Hollering Creek is her second novella collection and speaks of life as a Tejana woman on both sides of the border.

cuba anatomy of a revolution In “Cuba: Anatomy of a Revolution,” the authors, Leo Huberman and Paul M. Sweezy, with incredible detail and objectivity, offer a penetrating, if outdated, analysis of the Cuban revolution. Despite the book’s small size (about 175 pages), the authors, who visited Cuba shortly after the revolution interviewing peasants, workers, businessmen, and revolutionary leaders such as Che Guevara, provide a detailed background on the history of Cuba and the socio-economic conditions that existed in pre-revolutionary Cuba, as well as the rise of the July 26th Movement and the Cuban civil war, and a Marxist analysis of the policies, in particular the agrarian reform law, and structure of the new revolutionary government.
