Tsuru in Bisaya


No, I have not suddenly become a fan of KC Concepcion (who looks too much like her dad to be attractive to me); I'm posting this because this is the issue of Bisaya which features Dr. Mac Tiu's prize-winning short story Tsuru. It's out in the newsstands now; very cheap, only P25, so get your copy quickly.

Tsuru is a tale of an unlikely friendship between a young Filipino mother and a Japanese soldier during the occupation. There's funny moments, mixed with heartrending drama and stunning imagery. A must-read.



Mac has given me permission to publish it in full in Dagmay (it was printed in excerpt a while back) but I think I'll wait a while longer so you'll all be encouraged to buy the magazine.

  6. Her propensity for girth comes from her mom. As for the skin, sure, I'll grant that genes play a role, but you don't get to that level without a little help from Dr. B.
