The Hand of the Enemy won the 1961 Stonehill Award for Filipino Novel in English. In this novel, Kerima Polotan probes into the sensibility of the middle-class, and the intellectual elite. With her technical competence and fluent writing, Polotan follows her heroine as she agonizes through her marriage, the unfaithfulness of her husband, and the sense that life has defeated her. These personal concerns are linked to the climate of social and political corruption particularly in the city due to society's failure to read the lessons of history. Yet Polotan, although she shows her character to be a victim (not so much of society circumstances as of her own failure of will and her rather romantic perceptions and confused set of priorities), recognizes in her life and career that it is essential for a woman to survive and for a woman writer to be able to write and continue writing.
