Consider two of Sandra Cisneros’ other books, Woman Hollering Creek and Caramelo, both of which touch on similar themes of Hispanic culture and womanhood.
The House on Mango Street may also pair well with The Color Purple. Both books have female protagonists who grow and change in a world dominated by men. The books are very different in some respects—The Color Purple follows an adult African-American female protagonist while The House on Mango Street examines a Latino neighborhood through the eyes of an adolescent. However, they share themes and invite similar analysis.
