America is in the Heart - Anvil Classic

Sold out
First published in 1946, this classic semi-autobiographical novel of the well-known Filipino poet Carlos Bulosan describes the writer’s 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 of the US. 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 lived through.
