Literary critics have long problematized the relationship between the novel and issues of the nation-state. In this book, Ruth Jordana Pison takes a close look at a number of contemporary Philippine novels in English by women writers to analyze how these writers construct their nation—not merely to see how they situate the female voice in their narratives, but to see how the discourse of gender is interwoven into the discourse of nation, and how all of this is in turn linked to the larger narrative of imperialism and globalization.
