Fiction. Asian American Studies. Originally published in Australia under the title White Turtle, this collection of short stories by established Filipina writer Merlinda Bobis offers bold and lyrical explorations of postcolonial Filipino experience, at once epic in scope and intimate in detail. Merlinda Bobis, author of plays, poetry, and fiction, writes in both English and Filipino and lives in Australia. THE KISSING won the National Book Award for fiction from the Manila Critics Circle. Bobis has the rare ability to make poetry out of politics. In her work, the graceful use of metaphor becomes a formidable weapon, blasting escape routes out of stories of poverty and oppression -- Rachel Cunneen, Amida Magazine. ** Call to check inventory before ordering.
