The classic memoirs of the famous Filipino writer Carlos Bulosan, about his childhood in the Philippines and his difficult life in poverty and despair as an immigrant in America.
America is in the heart
"... it was a crime to be a Filipino in California."
This classic story by Carlos Bulosan, which he called "a personal history," is not a happy story. It is the story of a boy growing up in deep poverty in a farming village in the Philippines and leaving for America as a 17-year-old to start a new life. There, on the west coast of the United States, he experiences that the American dream is not for everyone. As an immigrant, and especially as a Filipino, a life of exploitation, discrimination, and violence awaits him. Between all the dramatic episodes there are moments full of optimism, idealism, and joy. But gradually the awareness of the narrator about the necessity of radical changes.
