Product description

Review

""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"

"'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 novelsrich 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)"

About the Author

Jose Dalisay is an English professor and director of the Institute of Creative Writing at the University of the Philippines. He is the author of more than 20 books, including novels, story collections, plays, and essays; a recipient of the National Book Award from the Manila Critics Circle; and was named by the Cultural Center of the Philippines Centennial Honors List as one of the top-100 most accomplished and influential Filipino artists of the past century."
