5 Reviews

This anthology puts together some sixty-six short stories in English written by Filipino authors within forty years following the introduction of English in the Philippines. Originally published in periodicals now long out of circulation, they have been given this more enduring form through the efforts of Leopoldo Y. Yabes, a well-known literary critic, scholar, and educator.

Students of Philippine literature will find this anthology invaluable as a reference and will appreciate the discussion and information provided by the editor in his introductory essays.
