Synopsis

Collects stories that stand on their own, and yet cohere together into a literary document about the Filipino at home. Tondo, Albay, and Manila provide the setting and shape the mood of many of these stories. Here Bienvenido N. Santos’ characters are no longer the expatriate Pinoys longing for home, as in YOU LOVELY PEOPLE, but downhome priests, salesmen, school teachers, and students. For the author, who has lived abroad for many years, the stories are, critic Leonard Casper has said, “A painful journey back to his heritage…” For the reader they are a recognition of the human, and a discovery of the Filipino.
