Twenty years have passed since this groundbreaking book was first published. In 1994, there was hardly any “life writing” being published in the Philippines, let alone critical commentary of it. Hidalgo retrieved what she called “autobiographical narratives” by Filipino women from their essay collections, columns, and sundry other publications, and focused on how they wrote and rewrote themselves while writing of their “homes.” The UST Publishing House has decided to re-issue Hidalgo’s book, with a new Preface by the author, because the field remains relatively unexplored today (despite the publication of many more memoirs by Filipinas) and its insights remain fresh and relevant.

CRISTINA PANTOJA HIDALGO has published more than 30 books, including 2 novels, 5 short story collections, 13 nonfiction collections, and 4 works of literary commentary. She has a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from UP, where she served as director of both the UP Creative Writing Center and the UP Press, and as Vice President for Public Affairs. At present she is the Director of the UST Center for Creative Writing and Literary Studies. She obtained an M.A. in English Literature and a Ph.B. in Philosophy, magna cum laude from UST and served as Director of its Publishing House. As UP Professor Emeritus she continues to teach creative writing and literature at both UST and UP.
