9780974348537: America Is in the Heart: A Personal History (Classics of Asian American Literature)

This classic of Asian American history is now available in an unabridged audio edition. First published in 1946, this autobiography of the well-known Filipino poet describes his boyhood in the Philippines, his voyage to America, and his years of hardship and despair as an itinerant laborer following the harvest trail in the rural West. Bulosan does not spare the reader any of the horrors that accompanied the migrant's life; but his quiet, stoic voice is the most convincing witness to the terrible events he witnessed.

Book Description:

"It was a crime to be a Filipino in California. . . . The public streets were not free to my people: we were stopped each time these vigilant patrolmen saw us driving a car. We were suspect each time we were seen with a white woman. And perhaps it was this narrowing of our life into an island, into a filthy segment of American society that had driven Filipinos . . . inward, hating everyone and despising all positive urgencies toward freedom."

(Carlos Bulosan)
