This collection touches on memory, love, the sorrow of loss, and childhood joy—all viewed through the prism of a unique Asian culture that is the product of American and Spanish colonization. The anthology reflects the myriad changes faced by Filipinas in the twenty-first century, their songs of survival, and the bridging of cultures. It gives voice and vision to the current condition of Filipinas throughout the world, while celebrating the lessons of childhood, memory, and place. It presents a shared history of Filipinas’ struggle to maintain identity in the far-flung Philippine diaspora. These women challenge the traditional ideas of home and show how landscapes inhabit us, making up who we are, how we think, and how we live. Among the fifty-two contributors are M. Evelina Galang, Fran Ng, Angela Narcisco Torres, Merlinda Bobis, Luisa Igloria, Lewanda Lim, Catalina Cariaga, and Linda Ty-Casper.

"Brava! A wonderful new addition to the growing body of Philippine diaspora literature."—Jessica Hagedorn

"The poems and stories in this stunning collection are poignant, raw, hip, and beautiful. A lyrically charged landscape worth revisiting again and again."—R. Zamora, author of Rolling the R’s
