About the Author:

Bino A. Realuyo was born and raised in Manila. He is the author of the acclaimed novel The Umbrella Country. His poems have appeared in The Kenyon Review, Manoa, The Literary Review, New Letters, and The Nation. He is the recipient of the Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America.

Review:

"Bino A. Realuyo has that rare gift of transforming modern horror into art. In The Gods We Worship Live Next Door he writes of his beleaguered country, the Philippines, in ways that reveal universal truths. The land is vibrant and alive, real with mythical shadows-rituals, dances, work-and, at the same time, racked by persecution and death. The book is passionate without a trace of sentimentality, a compelling account of destruction under a silent god."—Grace Schulman, City University of New York



"Realuyo's collection, with its ability to hold up a mirror to history and memory, to hold the reader's gaze unflinchingly, and to bring the neighbor out of his panoptic temple and into the full disclosure, is a fitting legacy of Ali's life work and a tribute to the survival of so many unheard voices."—Galatea Resurrects
 



"An angry and powerful testimony to the centuries of deprivation and inequality that the Filipino people have suffered under the yoke of successive waves of colonialism and corrupt and ineffective governments."—The Asian Review of Books on the Web

 



"This is a fierce, fierce collection. Realuyo's poems are a relentless, fearless witness to executions, rapes, torture, injustice, fear, poverty, nightmares, myths, disasters, terror, salvaging, survival. An important, important book."—North American Review
