EXILES, EMIGRANTS, AND WANDERS
Mia Alvar at Type Books to celebrate In The Country > JULY 29
Random House Canada and Type Books welcome Mia Alvar to celebrate her new book of stories, In The Country.
ABOUT THE BOOK
These nine globe-trotting, unforgettable stories vividly give voice to the women and men of the Filipino diaspora. Here are exiles, emigrants, and wanderers uprooting their families from the Philippines to begin new lives in the Middle East, the United States, and elsewhere—and, sometimes, turning back again.
Listen to Mia Alvar talk to NPR about potential misconceptions about Filipino workers, unlikely friendships amoung migrants, and writing in the second person.
