Untitled Novel in Progress
Descrizione del progetto
While in Rome, I will continue work on my novel in progress, which focuses on the troubled relationship between a mother and son and deals with undocumented Filipinos living in California, Internet scam artists, Filipino rebel movements during World War II, and 1980s action films. The novel is under contract with Ecco/HarperCollins. I will also begin work on a second collection of short stories.
