CROSSINGS: Portrait of a Revolutionary


CROSSINGS: Portrait of a Revolutionary

Rolando E. Peña


The book opens with the carefree days of Peña's youth and ends with samples of his translation of some of the best of world literature into Filipino or English. In between, the reader enters a world of coded communications, a network of underground couriers, romantic interludes, a chase through the forest with enemy soldiers at heels. There is also a glimpse into an exile's everyday life in China during the Cultural Revolution.


This book of remembering is an important contribution to the literature of protest. In a country starved for real heroes, Peña, who turned his back on what could have been a lucrative career, heeded the call to fight a dictatorship and quietly worked for the revolution.
