Drawing from Abad's introduction, one could regard the stories as a quest of memory, and the poems a probe of feeling, which both seek to define our humanity as a Filipino. Whether the subject in story or poem is love or family, natural function or even an idea, what is crucial for the definition is the integrity of the fictional persona's response. But the form that integrity takes is always, for both persona and reader, work of imagination.

Winner of the 2002 Manila Critics’ Circle National Book Award for Personal Anthology, A Makeshift Sun compiles the author’s most recent stories and poems, some of them rather startling departures from his earlier work. Multi-awarded writer and scholar Gémino H. Abad served as Secretary and Vice President for Academic Affairs and Director of Likhaan: The UP Institute of Creative Writing. He holds the highest rank at the University of the Philippines, University Professor.
