In The Company of Strangers

Michelle Cruz Skinner

Softcover, 181 pp.

Sixteen deceptively simple stories comprise Michelle Cruz Skinner’s much-anticipated follow-up to Balikbayan and Mango Seasons, many of them about filipinos tongue-tied and alienated in the motherland, or scattered across the map of heartaches and homesickness in the company of strangers called country men, family, lovers. A book of quiet gems definitely worth the wait.
