A first experience of America is at the heart of this collection. In 1987, on a Fulbright grant, the author travelled to America to study at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, for his M.F.A. Creative Writing. He stayed there for three years meeting people and making friends, travelling whenever he could, and cultivating the peripatetic and peregrine in himself, and gathering a rich hoard of experiences that found expression not only in this book but also in his subsequent books. This is one Filipino native's first flush of excitement at being in the land of his neighbors' dreams, and the experiences left an indelible mark on his impressionable spirit.
