“An exceptional collection of essays– these are meditations that explore the enigma and the complexity of the Filipino diaspora as well as the hopes and triumphs of writing, living, and being in between cultures. This collection, edited with a powerful introduction by Luisa Igloria, inspires the reader as well as those intrested in diasporic studies to comprehend the sorrows as well as the joys of living in the spaces between worlds.”
