SARCOPHAGUS AND OTHER STORIES, first published by the UP Press in 1992, is Jose Y. Dalisay Jr.'s second collection of short stories. The first edition of 500 copies sold out shortly after publication. But many of the author's strongest stories - "The Other Side," "In the Garden," "Merlie," "The Body" and "Under the Dinosaurs" appear in this collection. This reprinting makes them available again to Dalisay's readers, students and critics.
"Jose Y. Dalisay Jr.'s second short story collection is a writer's writer's opus. Those who were charmed with his first collection, Oldtimer and Other Stories, will find this one a dainty feast for the reader's reader, well worth the eight-year wait ..."
