Solid writing with interesting stories that surprised me. I don't think I've ever read a book about Filipino people, their country and their lives. I liked the unselfconscious writing style and familiar way the author wrote about these characters. I've been recommending this to a lot of my reader friends.

Excellent book of short stories, well-crafted, interesting and provided much insight into the life of Phillipino workers. Really enjoyed it.
