A poetry novella

Have You Seen Marie?
Have You Seen Marie?

By: Sandra Cisneros

Genre: Adult fiction/Poetry

Pages: 112

Published: 2012

Read: March

3.5 out of 5

I must say I enjoyed the afterword as much, if not more, than the rest of the story.  I wish the afterword was written as a foreword; I believe I would have appreciated this novella more. I didn’t know what to expect from this book. As I began to read it, I thought it was written for children. In her afterword, she states “it is for adults because something was needed for people like me who suddenly found themselves orphans in midlife (pg.92).”  She also explains that the people she talks to along her search are actual neighbors that posed for the book.  The drawings are phenomenal and very realistic. I loved them! I recommend this book, but strong urge readers to read the afterword first.
