For his first English novel, this Filipino author received high praise, including that of LJ's reviewer who claimed Nolledo "[has] perfect control of technique, and appears, enviably, to be able to write almost as he pleases" (LJ 11/1/70). The novel is set in Manila during the Japanese occupation as the American invasion is beginning. This remains an "important novel."

"This is a strange, compelling book that has the tortuous complexity and is fraught with the labyrinthine terrors of a dream...." -- Publishers Weekly
"[Nolledo's] deliberately disjointed style merges personalities and events into one stunning nightmarewith a momentum all its own, and a built-in, kaleidoscopic continuity." -- Martin Levin, New York Times Book Review
