Out of Cebu collects 28 essays by award-winning author, Cecilia Manguerra Brainard. Many of the essays are about Cebu, Philippines: its history, the places to see in this southern Philippine city, her experiences growing there, and colorful accounts about her mother's family, the Cuencos, a powerful political family in Cebu and the Philippines. There are also travel and food essays, all told from Brainard's unique point of view of a Cebu-born writer now living in the United States.
