By Michael C.Hawkins
While the Blanket is Short, Learn to Curl Up speaks of a world that is at once both foreign and familiar, exotic and mundane, localized and trans-global, but always human. These stories from the Philippines and its global Diaspora reveal the intimate spaces of a culture in transition. They explore the triumphant and tragic aspects of a community like no other, with characters and circumstances that inspire the imagination and pull at the heart strings.
“A wonderful book ... Mike Hawkins explores the minds and hearts of Filipinos, allowing us to feel their passion, pain and loneliness.”
— Rosemary Sneeringer, The Book Nurturer
“A multifaceted collection of short-stories, these narratives reflect the unique lives and experiences of individuals while knitting together a larger Filipino narrative. This book successfully questions the one-dimensional portrayal often attributed to Filipinos today and is definitely a worthwhile experience for any reader.”
