Mayor of the roses: stories
Fiction. Asian American Studies. "There is a disarming immediacy to these stories, most related by a young Filipina emigrant to the States, about a search for what should be accessible-home, family, history-but proves so rarely nowadays to be so. These are moving, finely crafted tales"-Ehud Havazelet. Born and raised in Manila, Villanueva currently teaches writing and literature at Foothill College and Notre Dame de Namur University. Villanueva is also the author of GINSENG AND OTHER TALES FROM MANILA (Calyx Books 1991).
