    Women of Tammuz

    Azucena Grajo-Uranza

    Co-Winner, National Book Award/Juan C. Laya Award, Best Novel in a Philippine Language, 2004
    “In the grand tradition of Rizal and Nick Joaquin, Azucena Grajo Uranza uses our troubled history as the matrix of her fiction. Women of Tammuz traces the convoluted lives of several Filipinos—mostly women—through the last halcyon days preceding World War II, on to the grim years of the Japanese Occupation. The story ends with the liberation of Manila. More than a novel on the war, this novel portrays evocatively the courage of ordinary Filipinos as they persevere through tragedy. A must read for those who despair, and those who don’t.”—F. Sionil Jose, National Artist
