    Filled with passion, love, jealousy and deceit, the story of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera captured the world’s imagination. Told in the voice of Frida’s sister, Christina, who is witness to their tumultuous marriage, this is a brilliantly conceived work of fiction and a vivid portrait of a compelling, unique woman.

    E. Dalton says: "Fascinating and well written"

    Never

    Frustration for paying for such a poor , noisy rendition

  • Casi una Mujer (Texto Completo) [Almost a Woman ]

    Story
    (11)

    From a three-room apartment in Brooklyn, occupied by 10 family members, Esmeralda Santiago begins a journey that is both a triumphant struggle for identity and independence, and a mother's worst nightmare. Challenged by language barriers, cultural stereotypes, and the fiercely protective Mami, Santiago continues the rollicking ascent she began in When I Was Puerto Rican. By day she perfects the role of Cleopatra at Performing Arts High School and interprets for the family at city welfare offices.

    Alan says: "If you enjoyed Cuando Era Puertorriquena, get it."
    "wonderful and absorbing autobiography"
    Overall

    Santiago writes beautifully and with insight. Her depiction of the life of young Puerto Rican immigrant is deftly told, absorbing and poignant.
