About this title

Synopsis:

Acapulco at Sunset and Other Stories is award-winning author, Cecilia Manguerra Brainard's second short story collection. The seventeen enchanting Filipino short stories are grouped into four categories: Long Ago Tales, Stories from the '60s and '70s, Stories from the '90s, and American Tales.The author, a Cebuana residing in Southern California, hopes readers will "learn something...about Filipinos or about mankind in general." Adding to her cast of Filipino characters in Philippine settings during the twentieth century, Brainard includes other nationals, Mexican and American settings, and the eighteenth century to communicate universal and timeless truths...Brainard's treatment of Filipinos and cultural assumptions and social practices regarding men and women, marriage, and social roles and relationships across the life cycle is insightful.
