Publisher's Summary

A brave new collection of poems from Sandra Cisneros, the best-selling author of The House on Mango Street.

It has been twenty-eight years since Sandra Cisneros published a book of poetry. With dozens of never-before-seen poems, Woman Without Shame is a moving collection of songs, elegies, and declarations that chronicle her pilgrimage toward rebirth and the recognition of her prerogative as a woman artist. 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.

Critic Reviews

“These lush, narrative-lyrics are written with a vivid wild girl spirit, filled with unbridled love, angst and joy! This book is a page-turner and should not be missed!” (Marilyn Chin, author of Portrait of the Self as Nation)

Woman Without Shame is a wonderful book, inspirational in the best sense—reminding me yet again why poetry is so vital. We need words of substance phrased with passion and insight in these daunting days.” (Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina)

“A swirling sea of sentiments, stories, and sounds. By the end, I am joyfully replenished.” (Luis J. Rodriguez, author of Borrowed Bones and former Los Angeles Poet Laureate)
