What sets Ms. Campilan’s award-winning novel from the work of her peers is its incisive, poignant take on the experience of young Filipinos struggling to find their place in the world. Crisanta, raised in a foreign land by parents who chose to work abroad, comes back and finds herself having to reintegrate to the local culture. All My Lonely Islands delves into this Filipina’s psyche, and seeks answers to difficult questions of identity and belonging.

About the Book

One crisp March evening, Crisanta and Ferdinand arrive on the remote Batanes islands for a mission: locate Graciella, whose son, Stevan, they saw die in a tragic accident a decade ago. But they need to confess something to her: Stevan’s death is not all what it seems. Oppressed by a decade of painful memories, Crisanta and Ferdinand must race against time—from the wild swamplands of the Sundarban forest in Bangladesh to the back alleys of Manila to the savage cliffs of Batanes—to offer Graciella the truth that they themselves cannot bear to face.
