Characters on Fire with Sandra Cisneros


At World Literature Today, Sandra Cisneros discusses her forthcoming poetry collection, Woman Without Shame, and why she is attracted to writing about characters and stories with an urgent quality. “I write about people whose lives are on fire,” she says. “If you think of people you love who are living in houses on fire, would you run in and save them? Yes, you would risk your own being. So, I think about people whose lives are on fire. Maybe you know them so well. Maybe you lived in that house once. You think nothing of running in there and saving them. And that’s what’s on your mind.”
