Featuring essays by fifteen leading writers in the Filipino diaspora, including Nick Carbo, Reine Arcache Melvin, Bino Realuyo, Aimee Nezukumatathil, Eileen Tabios, Barbara Jane P. Reyes, Merlinda Bobis, Jon Pineda, Edna Weisser, and Ella Wagemakers.

"An exceptional collection of essays—these are meditations that explore the enigma and the complexity of the Filipino diaspora as well as the hopes and triumphs of writing, living, and being in between cultures.

This collection, edited with a powerful introduction by Luisa Igloria, inspires the reader as well as those interested in diasporic studies to comprehend the sorrows as well as the joys of living in the spaces between worlds."
