A follow-up to their 1984 work "The Writer and his Milieu," an oral history of the first generation of Philippine writers in English."The writers of this generation were the 'younger writers' who were coming to Manila from the provinces or entering the University of the Philippines in the mid-1930s. ... Some of these writers were sent to the Iowa Creative Writing Workshop, others on Rockefeller and other grants... as a whole, it was a generation that brought a particular and permanent shaping influence both to Philippine writing in English and to literary criticism."
