    Rosario A. Garcellano

    The author writes of streets filled with strangers “who wear deadpan faces and hooded eyes so unnerving you become extremely careful where you direct your gaze,” and women “guarding bags of bread, hardboiled eggs,” who “crouch [on the streets] until dawn, oases for cabbies and the occasional chauffeur slowly starving in his master’s Mercedes.”
    Manila: Kalikasan Press, 1991
