By Sandra Cisneros, Liliana Valenzuela, Ester Hernández
Liliana Valenzuela (traducción), Ester Hernández (ilustraciones).
La mundialmente aclamada autora de La casa en Mango Street nos brinda un relato profundamente conmovedor acerca de l. a. pérdida, el duelo y l. a. sanación: una fábula para adultos líricamente narrada y vívidamente ilustrada sobre una mujer que busca un gato extraviado tras los angeles muerte de su madre.
La palabra “huérfana” no parecería aplicarse a una mujer de cincuenta y tres años de edad. Sin embargo, así es exactamente cómo se siente Sandra al encontrarse sin madre, sola “como un guante abandonado en l. a. estación de autobuses”. Lo que pudiera salvarla es l. a. búsqueda de algo más que se ha perdido: María, l. a. gatita blanquinegra de su amiga, Rosi, que se largó el día en que ellas dos llegaron desde Tacoma. A medida que Sandra y Rosi peinan las calles de San Antonio—preguntando por todas partes y poniendo volantes—¿Has visto a María? hace gala de l. a. habilidad de esta querida autora de contar cuentos llenos de magia, en un relato que nos recuerda cómo el amor, aun cuando desaparece, no se pierde por siempre.

So numerous indeed and so powerful are the causes which serve to give a false bias to the judgment, that we, upon many occasions, see wise and good men on the wrong as well as on the right side of questions of the ﬁrst magnitude to society. This circumstance, if duly attended to, would furnish a lesson of moderation to those who are ever so thoroughly persuaded of their being in the right in any controversy. And a further reason for caution, in this respect, might be drawn from the reﬂection that we are not always sure that those who advocate the truth are inﬂuenced by purer principles than their antagonists.
