From a rippled zinc shack in rural Puerto Rico to "the better life" in a decaying Brooklyn tenement, Esmeralda Santiago's Puerto Rican childhood is one of sorcery, smoldering war between the sexes, and high comedy. Hers is a portrait of a harsh but enchanted world that can never be reclaimed.

Me gusto mucho el libro, soy dominicana y tambien inmigrante a los Estados Unidos. Me identifico con muchas de las vivencias de la autora contadas de forma amena y aveces divertida.
