Bob Boyer offers affectionate —often intimate— portraits of Filipino life and culture, formed over many visits to a country that many if not most Americans know only in the broadest terms: as a staunch ally in the Pacific and its other wars, as the rack of Imelda’s shoes, and as the home of Manny Pacquiao. Bob sharpens that picture with factual detail, but also softens the resulting image of the Filipino with his sympathy and understanding. Whether he’s riding a jeepney, sipping iced tea at the Chocolate Kiss, exploring the mysteries of Quiapo and Mt. Banahaw, or marching up Bataan and Corregidor, Dr. Boyer invariably delights and inevitably instructs; sometimes —like all good teachers do, but ever so gently— Bob disturbs and critiques us with his observations. It’s hard to imagine how a visitor from the snowbound American Midwest could connect so well with sun-baked Pinoys, but Bob Boyer did— and does again, through this eminently enjoyable book.
