    A Normal Life and Other Stories

    Reine Arcache Melvin

    Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 1999
    The subject of her stories is desire for a lover, for a homeland, for the possibility of a simple life. Many of these tales take place in the Philippines during the time of coups d’etat and revolutions, but the men and women of A Normal Life are caught in their own private dramas: the end of marriage, the beginning of a love affair, the ambiguities of motherhood, and the thrall of eroticism.
