Cisneros, stranded among male relatives and already feeling isolated by frequent moves within the US, retreated into quiet, bilingual observation. Cisneros's first novel, The House on Mango Street , was brought out by a small Houston publisher 18 years ago.

With her short-story collection Woman Hollering Creek , she also became the first Chicana writer to be published by a major New York house.
