In Sandra Cisneros’s Martita, I Remember You, a long-forgotten letter sets off a charged encounter with the past in a beautiful tribute to the life-changing power of youthful friendship. This dual-language edition is the iconic author’s first foray into fiction in more than nine years, and we’re so pleased with this gorgeously told tale. The critics agree! Third Coast Reviews calls Martita an “exquisite jewel of a novella,” and Alma writes, “the magic and power of [Cisneros’s] writing is ever present.”
To give you a taste of the story, we’re sharing two must-watch clips featuring the legend herself. In these videos, Sandra introduces the book and then reads an atmospheric excerpt from the story. Enjoy!
