Abstract

Excerpt

Fernando Leaño is among the footnotes to history, in this case the history of modern Philippine literature in English. He is so little recognized that he is not even mentioned in Valeros and Valeros- Gruenberg (1987). But, somewhat surprisingly, he is included among the writers interviewed in Alegre and Fernandez (1984, 122-23). I say "surprisingly" not because Leaño lacked talent but because of his truncated career as a published author of prose fiction.
