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, inspries the reader as well as those interested in diasporic studies to comprehend the sorrows as well as joys of living in the spaces between worlds." -- Marjorie Agosin -- Chilean American author "A lovely and powerful book -- a meditation on what it means to be other. It's about journeys; its's about memory. It's about recovery and discovery. Ultimately healing and transformative, this is a book to savor." -- Marianne VIlanueva, author "This collection of creative essays offers thoughtful literay meditations on the Filipion diaspora. Representing diverse generations, destinations, and the evolving cultural practices that characterize the transnational experience, the authors juxtapose issues of language, class, race, and the ethnicity with writerly concerns and approaches. Luisa Igloria's assembling of the multiplicity of positions b players in the diaspora is a significant addition to the flourishing canon of writing by global Filipinos who, navigating the intersection of personal choices and cultural contingencies, illustrate how exile and immigration become creative inspirations for the production of new forms, perspectives and narratives." -- Rocio G. Davis -- author
