Product Description

Review

"'Tell us the truth!' we demand of a book, and this one does with calculated vivacity, spiked with galling humor, wit, and felicity of language that gives the Filipino novel a new stature."  —Nestor (N.V.M.) Gonzales, author, The Bamboo Dancers



"Consummate craftsmanship characterized by clear and firm language, an absorbing narrative, and loving insights into the Filipino psyche. A sympathetic, contemporary record of our turbulent days."  —Manila Critics Circle, National Book Award Citation


"Soledad’s Sister and Killing Time in a Warm Place are two of his very fine short novels—rich with characters who are complex, deftly drawn and compelling. The U.S. reader is in for a treat."  —Jessica Hagedorn, National Book Award Nominee, Dogeaters



"Jose Dalisay is a truth-teller...The stories grip the reader's attention from the outset, and like much great literature, they tell us about guilt, collaboration, and redemption." —Charles Baxter, author, National Book Award-Finalist The Feast of Love and Gryphon: New and Selected Stories



"Dalisay's two short novels, compiled into one volume and both set in his native Philippines, are full of evocative words and images . . . [and] rich, riveting detail. Combined, both will leave readers with a lingering, haunted feeling." —Publisher's Weekly (March 29, 2011)
