One of our two 2017 titles, THE HOUR OF DAYDREAMS had the disadvantage of coming out in March, when nobody was reading fiction because the world was ending. The world's still ending, but you should catch up on your reading now, and this novel reimagines a Filipino folktale with a weave of literary language and inventiveness that will leave you breathless. And in its own way, it's a #metoo story, so those of us dealing with our own stories should open our hearts to Tala and her life with her new husband in the Philippines.
