    DescriptionPoetry. Fiction. Asian American Studies. Literary criticism. This republication of Villa's writings both recovers and rediscovers the work of this fierce iconoclast for a new generation. Oscar V. Campomanes of the University of California writes, To say of Jose Garcia Villa that he made English 'strange' to native English speakers -- as Jean Paul Sarte once said about Frantz Fanon and French -- is no extravagant claim ... Villa hungrily embraced colonial culture even as, like Fanon, Villa sought to transform its impositions into highly novel, even unrecognizable, verbal artifacts and art forms. This volume is bound to dramatically recast our considerations of American modenism, Asian and Filipino American literary history, and the rise of 'englishes' in colonial and postcolonial studies. Anyone interested in the least-understood cultural underside of the U.S. colonization of the Philippines or in the colonial aspect of American cultural assimilationism would do well to read and enjoy this book. I hail it as a major
