Some brief overview of this book

A simultaneous Spanish-language edition, originally translated for Vintage by

Nina Torres-Vidal

In her new memior, the acclaimed author of When I Was Puerto Rican continues the riveting chronicle of her life.

Negi, as Santiagos family affectionately calls her, leaves rural Macun in 1961 to live in a three-bedroom tenement apartment with seven siblings, and inquisitive grandmother, and a strict mother who wont allow her to date. At thirteen, Negi yearns for her own bed, for privacy, and her father, who remains in Puerto Rico. Translating for Mami at the welfare office in the morning, starring as Cleopatra at New Yorks Performing Arts High School in the afternoon, and dancing salsa all night, she also seeks to find balance between being an American and Puerto Rican. When Negi defies her mother by going on a series of dates, she finds that independence brings challenges.

At once a universally poignant coming-of-age tale and a heartfelt immigrants story, Almost a Woman is Santiagos triumphant journey into womanhood.

Authors third novel and a long-awaited sequel to her first autobiographical novel, Cuando era puertorriqueäna. She continues to chronicle her life as she leaves her childhood behind and enters adult life where her American values increasingly clash with those of her Puerto Rican parents. Most of all, this novel helps understand how Esmeralda Santiago, the writer was formed and became a writer—Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
