The Philippines is a country about which is stated in an authoritative tone. Jose Rizal, 'The Pride of the Malay Race', is the Philippine national hero and man of all knowledge. Carlos Bulosan was quite another type of man. His book best-known to Filipinists is America Is in the Heart, an autobiography about his early years in America that is factual but with great poetic licence. A third writer is Stevan Javellana, whose only published book was Without Seeing the Dawn. This novel of the Second World War in the provincial Philippines won critical acclaim and sold well in the United States. A few novels produced in America have been historical either as social documents or as military history shoehorned into American minds as background to a yarn. Benjamin Appel's Fortress in the Rice is fiction at length, in depth, and with several missions.
