The Short Stories of Manuel E. Arguilla

1. How My Brother Leon Brought Home A Wife - This is Arguilla's most famous story and literary work. Hell, it's probably the most popular short story ever written by a Filipino author. Anyone who has gone through a literature subject or course in any university in the Philippines knows this story. Think of it as the Philippine version of The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe, or The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, or The Magi by O. Henry. It's so popular that a large percentage of Filipinos have read or at least heard about it.
