From the TALK series, World War II Generation
Discussion Leader: Nancy Hope
Taking its title from a traditional adage: "When the elephants dance, the chickens must be careful," this novel focuses on the Filipino people, caught in the Japanese and American crossfire, in the war's waning days. A hiding family spends its time telling tales of magic, ghosts, and legends, affirming their Filipino identity. Outside, we see the war through the eyes of a teenage boy, his older sister, and a partisan fleeing the Japanese. 367 pp.
