New York: Kaya Press, 1999. 255 p. Includes Landmarks, Bibliography and Index. Softcover

This book reintroduces the work of the celebrated writer, Jose Garcia Villa, to the United States. At the height of his career, Villa’s writings earned him prizes, fellowships, and lavish praise from some of the greatest literary luminaries of the day. Yet his work has been out of the public eye for more than thirty years and out of print form more than fifteen. Although named to a National Artist in the Philippines where he was born, Villa remains largely unknown in the United States today. This publication recovers and rediscovers the work of this fierce iconoclast for a new generation.

Jose Garcia Villa was born in Manila in 1908 and emigrated to the United States in 1930. His swards and honors include a Shelley Memorial Award, American Academy of Arts and Letters Award and fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations. Villa died in 1997 in New York City.
