'This book is it: one of the best debut novels (and novels, period) of recent years' Elle The next big thing... It has drama and tragedy in spades, but it also has so much love of every kind spilling out of it pages that I closed it each night with a huge, warm smile.' The Paris Review How many lives can one person lead in a single lifetime? When Hero De Vera arrives in America, disowned by her parents in the Philippines, she's already on her third. Her uncle, Pol, who has offered her a fresh start and a place to stay in the Bay Area, knows not to ask about the first and second. And his younger wife, Paz, has learned enough about the might and secrecy of the De Vera family to keep her head down. Only their daughter Roni asks Hero why her hands seem to scream with hurt at the steering wheel of the car she drives to collect her from school, and only Rosalyn, the fierce but open-hearted beautician, has any hope of bringing Hero back from the dead.

Songwriting is an art in which lessons and experiences of the past and present can be communicated through the channel of music and writing. From this mode of communication, this creative project embodies a different take on the incorporation of "voice" by analyzing a significant work of Filipino American literature to be further experienced by the general public in song. In this project I aimed to create three relatable songs for future listeners by incorporating themes from the novel, America is in the Heart by Carlos Bulosan. As a Filipino immigrant, poet and activist during the Great Depression, Bulosan's journey symbolizes prominent themes of individuality, silence, and farewell which are deeply relatable to listeners from all walks of life. Through the use of found poetry, themes were found and then interpreted into folk songs. This project required that I balance three separate roles: researcher, folk musician, and identification as a Filipino American in order to acquire themes relatable to the human experience, choosing the right lyrics through found poetry, and relay these emotions through music in a relatable way towards listeners. Since this novel provides a significant contribution towards Asian American literature, this paper gives a brief history of the novel, along with how Asian American literature came to fruition in university curriculums. Qualifications of the investigator are explored, along with the songwriting process that composed these themes and balance. These songs were recorded through "Tiny House Records," and will be shared further through a presentation with PCHRP, Portland's Committee for Human Rights in the Philippines, in July 2015.

During the Cold War, Ellis Island no longer served as the largest port of entry for immigrants, but as a prison for holding aliens the state wished to deport. The government criminalized those it considered un-assimilable (from left-wing intellectuals and black radicals to racialized migrant laborers) through the denial, annulment, and curtailment of citizenship and its rights. The island, ceasing to represent the iconic ideal of immigrant America, came to symbolize its very limits. Unbecoming Americans sets out to recover the shadow narratives of un-American writers forged out of the racial and political limits of citizenship. In this collection of Afro-Caribbean, Filipino, and African American writers—C.L.R. James, Carlos Bulosan, Claudia Jones, and Richard Wright—Joseph Keith examines how they used their exclusion from the nation, a condition he terms “alienage,” as a standpoint from which to imagine alternative global solidarities and to interrogate the contradictions of the United States as a country, a republic, and an empire at the dawn of the "American Century.” Building on scholarship linking the forms of the novel to those of the nation, the book explores how these writers employed alternative aesthetic forms, including memoir, cultural criticism, and travel narrative, to contest prevailing notions of race, nation, and citizenship. Ultimately they produced a vital counter-discourse of freedom in opposition to the new formations of empire emerging in the years after World War II, forms that continue to shape our world today.

Ένα σύγχρονο αριστούργηµα από την πιο δηµοφιλή Ιταλίδα συγγραφέα της εποχής µας. Η Υπέροχη Φίλη µου, το πρώτο βιβλίο της Τετραλογίας της Νάπολης, είναι η ιστορία της Έλενας και της Λίλα, µια ιστορία που ξεκινά τη δεκαετία του ’50 µε φόντο µια φτωχογειτονιά της Νάπολης. Η συγγραφέας καταδύεται στην περίπλοκη φύση της φιλίας των δύο κοριτσιών που από έφηβες γίνονται γυναίκες, ακολουθώντας βήµα βήµα την εξέλιξη καθεµιάς ξεχωριστά, τον τρόπο που η µία επηρεάζει την άλλη, τα συναισθήµατα που ανά τις δεκαετίες τις βοηθούν να χτίσουν µια ουσιαστική, ακλόνητη σχέση. Με απαράµιλλο στιλ και αψεγάδιαστη, σχολαστική µατιά η Φερράντε σε µια καθηλωτική αφήγηση ξεδιπλώνει µέσα από την ιστορία µιας φιλίας την ιστορία µιας γειτονιάς, µιας πόλης κι εντέλει ενός έθνους που βιώνει κοσµοϊστορικές αλλαγές µε το πέρασµα των δεκαετιών. «Και τελικά το πραγµατικό θέµα της Φερράντε είναι το περιθώριο που έχει ο καθένας από µας, τόσο µεγάλο και τόσο ελάχιστο, να διαµορφώσει ο ίδιος την ύπαρξή του. Κι αυτό το περιθώριο εξετάζει από κάθε του άποψη, πολιτική, προσωπική, υπαρξιακή... Κατά βάθος αυτή η Τετραλογία της Νάπολης θα µπορούσε να ονοµαστεί η τετραλογία της ελευθερίας». Le Monde des Livres «Να διαποτίσεις τη µυθοπλασία µε την αδιάλυτη δύναµη της ζωής, να την κάνεις να είναι όχι απλά λέξεις στο χαρτί αλλά εσωτερική δύναµη, αυτό είναι το µεγαλύτερο επίτευγµα της τέχνης...» Financial Times «Η άγνωστη συγγραφέας ενός διάσηµου αριστουργήµατος... Η Έλενα Φερράντε αναγνωρίζεται σε παγκόσµιο επίπεδο ως µια σπουδαία συγγραφέας της εποχής µας. Κανείς µας όµως δε γνωρίζει την ταυτότητά της και εκείνη είναι αποφασισµένη να µην την αποκαλύψει». The Sunday Times «Ό,τι καλύτερο διάβασα φέτος». Richard Flanagan «Η Φερράντε µιλάει για τις γυναίκες και τη φιλία µε ασύλληπτη δύναµη». Gwyneth Paltrow «Διαβάζοντας τη Φερράντε θυµήθηκα αυτή τη σχεδόν παιδιάστικη έξαψη να διαβάσεις την επόµενη σελίδα, αυτή την αίσθηση ότι τα µάτια σου έχουν ξεκολλήσει από το κεφάλι σου, αυτή τη σκέψη πως ποτέ δεν περίµενες ότι τα βιβλία µπορούν να σου το κάνουν αυτό!» Elizabeth Strout (βραβείο Πούλιτζερ) «Η γραφή της Φερράντε δε γνωρίζει όρια, µπορεί να οδηγήσει την κάθε σκέψη στο ρηξικέλευθο αποτέλεσµα και αντίστοιχα να γυρίσει πίσω στην πιο ακραία της αρχή...» The New Yorker «Ένα αριστούργηµα, πέρα από όρια και είδη». Il Salvagente «Οι γυναίκες της Φερράντε είναι πραγµατικά έργα τέχνης!» El Pais «Φανταστείτε την Τζέιν Όστεν θυµωµένη και θα έχετε µια ιδέα του πόσο εκρηκτικά σπουδαία είναι αυτή η Τετραλογία της Νάπολης!» The Australian
