    Banyaga: A Song of War

    Charlson Ong

    Winner, National Book Award, Fiction in a Foreign Language, 2007
    “Banyaga is the latest of Charlson Ong’s works, a clearly polished window to the lives of contemporary Chinese Filipinos?their plight from the distressed homeland to this country where they made their homes. Charlson’s characters are drawn with flair and candor as they cope with the conflict of tradition and modernity and the anxieties of urban living. The story goes back to the 1896 Revolution, to the Japanese Occupation, the New Society’s Byzantine maze, onto the kidnapping and other forms of mayhem which Manilans are familiar with.” ?F. Sionil Jose, National Artist for Literature
