    The Sea-Gypsies Stay: New and Selected Works

    Rowena T. Torrevillas

    Winner, National Book Award, Personal Anthology, 2000
    According to the author, “All of us who write in English from a Filipino context experience a self-division, but the circumstances of my upbringing in Dumaguete and in the midwestern United States have sharpened my own feel for the edges and margins of things, and made me, for life, something of an onlooker…. Anyone who owns two languages knows the pleasure of grasping a word, of judging its heft and roughnesses, and its fine, sharp edges.”
    Quezon City: University of the Phillipines Press, 2000
    ISBN: 971-542-282-9
    158 pages
