The internationally acclaimed author of The House on Mango Street gives us a deeply moving tale of loss, grief, and healing. The word ‘orphan’ might not seem to apply to a fifty-three-year-old woman. Yet this is exactly how Sandra feels as she finds herself motherless, alone like ‘a glove left behind at the bus station.’ What just might save her is her search for someone else gone missing: Marie, the black-and-white cat of her friend, Roz, who ran off the day they arrived from Tacoma. As Sandra and Roz scour the streets of San Antonio, posting flyers and asking everywhere, ‘Have you seen Marie?’ the pursuit of this one small creature takes on unexpected urgency and meaning.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Cisneros writes her heroine’s way through the discovery that there is a way to emerge from sadness into memory. And yes, there is a happy ending.” Juneau Empire
“A magical journey…[Cisneros] hopes the book will comfort others dealing with loss.” Miami Herald
“Cisneros chronicles a search for a runaway cat that turns into a way to work through grief and discover community…[T]his warmhearted tale offers comfort to anyone coping with the loss of a loved one.” Kirkus Reviews
“This book is a wonderful gift to share with someone who is experiencing the pain of losing a loved one.” Modern Latina
“Award-winning Cisneros tells the story of her search for a runaway cat that parallels her journey through grief after the death of her mother…a solace to anyone who has felt the despair of losing someone dear.”Portland Book Review
“Warmly comforting…Cisneros has crafted a story that not only explores loss but also the journey back, creating a book that’s unique and uplifting.” El Paso Times
“Sandra’s neighbors remind her she is part of a community that understands loss, that can support her through loss. This reminder is one of the greatest gifts of the book: we may feel like abandoned gloves in our grief, but when we share our stories with one another, we realize we’re in the same lost-and-found box together.” San Francisco Chronicle
“A real-life bedtime story for grownups, a gently soul-stirring meditation on the universality of grief, and the healing power of community and nature…[Have You Seen Marie?] is also a love letter to the quirky neighborhood where Cisneros has lived for 20 years…Charming.” Seattle Times
