"Definitely one of the most outstanding anthologies published [in 1993], this collection of stories by 23 Filipino writers who work or used to work in the United Staes is a must-read for all students of Philippine Literature." (Isagani R. Cruz, foremost Manila critic, Philippine Star)
"World Literature Today says, "(Editor) Manguerra Brainard's selection is a delight. Some of the stories are masterly, especially those written by such reliables as Carlos Bulosan, Linda Ty-Casper, N.V.M. Gonzalez, and Alberto S. Florentino. None is less than highly competent, and all are worth reading. Manguerra Brainard has done an excellent job of mixing critical judgement and personal taste."
