Description
During his one and only return visit to the Philippines, Johnny de la Cruz-plagued by a sense of isolation-succumbs to a quick sexual encounter with an old flame, the attractive and beguiling Bunny Pi a. Years later, nineteen-year-old Winston Pi a has barely finished eulogizing his recently deceased mother when he finds a letter she wrote, but never sent, to Johnny. This leads Winston into the lives of the de la Cruz family-a family to which he might or might not belong. When the de la Cruz Family Danced explores the ties within family and how they are affected by circumstances of birth, immigration, and assimilation.
