(Contemporary Philippine fiction)
backcover text:
KILLING TIME IN A WARM PLACE is a novel of growing up in the Philippines during the Marcos years. Told in the voice of its protagonist, Noel Ilustre Bulaong, the narrative travels through familiar social and literary territory: the coconutgroves of Bulaong's childhood, Manila's hovels, the Diliman Commune, "UG" safehouses, martial law prisons, and the homes and offices of the petty-bourgeoisie. It is a story of false horizons, of betrayal, compromise, and guilt, and not incidentally of the contemporary middle-class Filipino's migration from the village to the metropolis to the outside world.
Winner of the 1993 National Book Award for Fiction, Co-Winner of the 1993 Palanca Grand Prize for the Novel, and Winner of the 1993 UP President's Award for Most Outstanding Publications.

5 out of 10

The subject was quite interesting, however with all the different palces and jumps from palce to place together with backshifts and some vocabulary I didn't know but was too lazy to look up, I didn't understand everything and it wasn't really a pleasure to read this novel.
Third book I have read for the Philippines.
