These novellas are portraits of Three Women who, like the Philippines, are troubled, victimized, and beautiful. Here is the swirling cultural life and physical world of the 20th century Philippines, with its gulf between immense wealth and crushing poverty, humane social concerns and police state repression. Here, too, is fierce sexuality that comes with love and the excitement of throwing off the bonds of the past.
