It was originally published exclusively in the English langauge, but was later translated to Filipino because of the subject matter of the novel. The book chronicles the lives of two Filipino brothers and their semi-successful attempts to assimilate into the culture and society of Southern California.

One brother, Tomas , has chosen the rough way of life. He dresses in the style of Mexican gangsters, and he breeds attack dogs and sells them to Hollywood celebrities for a living. The other brother, Gabe , does the opposite. Despite his attempts to distance himself from the way that Tomas lives, Gabe finds himself increasingly drawn towards it. The struggles of both of the brothers are told throughout the book.

This story is told with a keen purity that expertly weaves together a powerful message about foreign inhabitants of the United States of America and an engrossing tale of two brothers doing all that they can to survive. It is because of these traits that the book received the handful of awards that it did. It was also a notable selection in a issue of the New York Times.

Many speculate that because the book was written by a wholly unknown author, few people saw it, which led to few critics reviewing it. If this book has been more popular, it likely could have won many more awards than it did. Update this section!
