A Tropical Winter's Tale And Other Stories
These stories, selected by the author himself from his three prize-winning short story collections, tell an important part of the story of the Filipino-Chinese, itself an important part of the story to the nation. Writes poet and scholar Ronald Baytan: "There have been many Chinese writers writing in English... perhaps as early as the 1960s. No one else has achieved the status attained by Ong. In a way, it is his entry into mainstream Philippine Literature that has forced the critics to acknowledge the presence of a dynamic and growing body of writings by the Chinese.
Charleson Ong was educated at Xavier HS and the UP.
