Literary short fiction by the much-decorated Tenorio. I liked several of these stories; Tenorio's voice is gentle and humane and he looks carefully at family relationships, race, gender, longing, and irony. Most of the stories comment on the collision of Filipino/a and American culture, as well as on the confusions of love across gender roles. I expect to talk more about at least one of these stories on Late Night Library sometime soon. Good collection.
