The Philippines is in the Heart

Sold out

A posthumous response to his classic America is in the Heart, this collection of original, hitherto unpublished stories by Carlos Bulosan revealed the innovative, radical intellect sublimated in his comic masterpiece, The Laughter of My Father. Bulosan's homecoming explodes the stereotype of the author as a subaltern mimic and offers us a promise of celebrating the advent of proletarian jouissance and national liberation. This is an unprecedented performance of convivial fashioning of the Filipino artist as the exile forging the conscience of race.
