    Banana Heart Summer

    Merlinda Bobis

    Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, English Literature, 2004
    The myth of the banana heart inspires 12-year-old Nenita. She will appease her family’s hunger and win her mother’s love. As she cooks and eats, or dreams of cooking and eating, other love stories unfold in her street, lying between a volcano and a church. It is the hottest summer in the 1960s, in her small town reeling with the songs of Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, and the Beatles.
