Eavals What was effortless abroad becomes less idyllic when they return to the United States and their ending becomes as surprising and revealing as their beginning Torregrosa captures the way love transforms those who experience it for an unforgettable but often too brief time This book is distinguished not only by its strong uniue and conflicted heroines but also by Torregrosa’s lyrical portrait of the Philippines and the even exotic heart of intimacy..

    Before the Rain Read & download õ 8 Before the RainOriginally reviewed on A Reader of FictionsHaving completed Before the Rain I find myself with very little to say a rather rare occurrence for me Speechlessness of course can be the result of many emotions too fraught by the impact of the tale or too bored to care Unfortunately my reactions closely resemble the latterWhat drew me to this book was both the lgbt element and the historical aspect Coming into it I knew practically nothing about the history of the Philippines and learning about that history as a backdrop for a touching romance sounded like perfection Having read the last page of this memoir


  • Audra (Unabridged Chick)

    Before the Rain Read & download õ 8 Before the RainThis is a memoir that reads like a novel and that's both a good and bad thing Torregrosa has a sinuous vague slippery style of writing that I love in a good novel I was reminded a bit of early '90s Jeannette Winterson but feels a bit incomplete in a memoir This story of 'love and revolution' had plenty of revolution on an international and interpersonal scale but I felt a real lack of love in Torregrosa's narrativeWhich leads me back to my original complaint Were this a novel with some exploration into the motivations of our two heroines I would be all over this But as a memoir I wanted from Torregrosa I wanted her to go deeper in her recounting and analysis of her relationship and that juxtaposition with the tumultuous world of 1980s Philippines and international journalistsThere's an enormous distance between Torregrosa and the reader due to her writing style  A little dreamy very much removed

    Before the Rain Read & download õ 8 Before the RainIt’s the 1980s Luisita and Elizabeth first meet when they work for the same newspaper–Luisita as an editor and Elizabeth as a reporter Elizabeth is newly married and Luisita is in a relationship of her own Months later after Luisita goes through a bad break up she and Elizabeth start talking and flirting a bit Then things get serious When Elizabeth is assigned to the Philippines to cover the revolution that will run Marcos out of the country and put Auino in power Luisita decides to take a leave of absence from her job and join Elizabeth So begins their rather whirlwind relationship which ultimately ends in heartbreak after years of routine ups and downsTorregrosa is a good writer and Before the Rain is a great look at what it was like to be a journalist in the ’80s It’s worth reading for the travel and rev

    Before the Rain Read & download õ 8 Before the RainI was swept up with Torregrosa's writing in the beginning I began to lose interest after 100 pages but I may have been distancing myself from the emotion knowing the demise of the relationship was comingMemorable uote I believed then that writing came from the night from someplace secret and glorious that it came with the moon and the wind from the simple act of breathing I did not study it or practice it faithfully like the scales on the piano I was too romantic always for that I did not have it sketched out or in outlines I did not believe it was something one talked about discourses on style and techniue but something that came or did not come an inspiration 74We had a year or perhaps only weeks months or an eternity
