Enrico Antiporda | 4 comments My Philippine novel, A Light in the Cane Fields, is free right now (from 11/20-11/22, 2013) at Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/A-Light-Cane-Fi...

Set entirely in the Philippines about an NPA boy soldier, the novel was a top semifinalist at the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and received a tour de force review at Publishers Weekly: "A stylistic tour de force. A riveting epic of loss and transformation"

Enjoy the read.
