20th century historical memoir by Katinka Rodriguez to be published in 2016

Alford Marr is pleased to announce the upcoming publication of Birthdays in the Cemetery by Katinka Rodriguez, a vivid and heartwarming coming-of-age memoir set in the Philippines during World War II.

Katinka Rodriguez was born in the Philippines in 1935 but spent most of her adult life in the United States. In her memoir, Rodriguez writes about her childhood on the war-torn streets of Manila with a direct and vivid voice, bringing to life a time and a culture that many Americans know little about.

Birthdays in the Cemetery will be available in 2016 on Amazon in hardcover and paperback, or as a Kindle e-book.
