With nine globe-trotting, unforgettable stories, Mia Alvar vividly gives voice to the exiles, emigrants and wanderers of the Filipino diaspora.

From teachers to housemaids, from mothers to sons, her powerful debut collection explores the universal experiences of loss, displacement, and the longing to connect across borders both real and imagined. 

Winner of the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award for Fiction. Shortlisted for the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize.  Shortlisted for the John Leonard Prize
