The Spear Cuts through Water by Simon Jimenez

Staff Pick

Jimenez's second novel uses the framework of a theatrical production to create a unique, experimental story inspired by his cultural experiences as a Filipino American. In poetic and elegiac prose, he follows two young men on their harrowing journey to overthrow an empire's reign of terror, along the way questioning the work it takes to destroy unjust systems of government and what they leave in their wake, as well as asserting the beauty and power of fantasies drawn from folktales and mythologies outside the European mold.
