Killing Time in a Warm Place

Jose Dalisay Jr.

Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 1992

Killing Time in a Warm Place is a novel about growing up in the Philippines during the Marcos years. Told in the voice of its protagonist, Noel Ilustre Bulaong, the narrative travels through familiar social and literary territory: the coconut groves of Bulaon’s childhood, Manila’s hovels, the Diliman commune, “UG” safe houses, martial-law prisons, and the homes and offices of the petty-bourgeoisie. It is a story of false horizons, of betrayal, compromise, and guilt, and of the contemporary middle-class Filipino’s migration from the village to the metropolis to the outside world.
