Although I have a couple of Filipino friends, I know very little about the country and culture. I usually prefer novels to short stories, but decided on this title based on the glowing reviews, and because I wanted to challenge myself. I'm so glad I did so. Mia Alvar has a gift for finely drawn characters and writes stories which refer to major political events but foreground the impact on ordinary people. I'm keen to search out other Filipino authors as a result of this book.

Any additional comments?
Alvar is a writer to watch and remember. She is brilliant, and the stories are riveting and original. I will be teaching this book in my college literature class next spring.
