bookshelves: fiction, short-stories, filipino
Read in November, 2009

All of the stories, deep with personality if often simple in its words and description, evoke certain emotions from you as you read your way through the book. Most of them are sad or solemn in some way or another. Not only are they about Filipinos from various backgrounds—but through the backdrops and interactions of the characters within the stories you get a glimpse of the various facets and uniqueness of Filipino culture.
