(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.

Dieses und zwei andere Philippinen-Bücher sind heute gut bei mir angekommen. Ich freue mich schon darauf, es zu lesen und es wird mir bei der 1 Jahr = 1 Land-Challenge weiterhelfen. Vielen lieben Dank für diese Leihgabe!

Journal Entry 4 by book-a-billy at München, Bayern Germany on Friday, February 9, 2018
The subject was quite interesting, however with all the different places 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.

Journal Entry 6 by katopua at Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein Germany on Sunday, September 9, 2018
Dieses Buch ist schon vor Ewigkeiten zurückgekehrt. Wurde aufgrund von Renovierungsarbeiten aber erst jetzt ausgepackt.

Wandert wieder in das Regal mit Philippinischen Autoren und kann gerne erneut ausgeliehen werden.
