About the Author:

From the best available information, Carlos Bulosan was born in the province of Pangasinan in the village of Mangusmana, near the town of Binalonan, which in turn is located on the northern island of Luzon in the Philippine Islands. There is a wide range of dates cited in the extant literature, as well as in the FBI files, in regard to the exact year of his birth. Examining both the files and a range of published sources, at least seven different years are cited in terms of Bulosan's actual birth date: 1911; 1913; 1914; 1915; 1916; 1917; and 1919. While we realize that new immigrants are prone to alter details of their biography such as their birth date, such a set of years, that span almost a decade, seem unusual.

Review:

This collection of short stories is both humorous and amazing in their rural detail. One minute you laugh, the next you cry, but what you always do is turn the page. It's an enjoyable read from beginning to end and is invaluable as a historic tool to that era in the Philippines. --Louella Turner

Bulosan's literary works _ buried and forgotten during the later stages of his life _ have been resurrected and are now read widely, thanks to the efforts of Asian-American scholars and the University of Washington Press --The University of Washington
