Accompanying ‘Lilus Kikus’ in this first American edition are four of Poniatowska’s short stories with female protagonists, only one of which has been previously published in English. Poniatowska is admired today as a feminist, but inwhen ‘Lilus Kikus’ appeared, feminism didn’t have broad appeal.

Twenty-first-century readers will be fascinated by the way Poniatowska uses her child protagonist to point out the flaws poniaotwska adult society. Each of the drawings by the great surrealist Leonora Carrington that accompany the chapters in ‘Lilus Kikus’ expresses a subjective, interiorised vision of the child character’s contemplations on life.
