The Yellow Bar

By John Falch

Historical fiction | Paperback, eBook


Meet the Reynaldos, a simple country family living on their farm in 1940s American Philippines. Good luck has bounced their way and the family is climbing out of rural poverty to become successful entrepreneurs. But sweet luck turns bitter when World War II erupts explosively in their backyard. The victorious Japanese arrive as their new masters, bringing with them a new set of rules. This includes forcing the Reynaldos to be servants in their own house. As seen through the eyes of their youngest son, Pepot, "The Yellow Bar" delivers a close-up view of the almost forgotten history of the Japanese occupation of the Philippines and the horrors of the Battle of Manila. It tells the story of a remarkable family that struggles to survive through quick thinking, faith, and a pinch of dark humor.



Raised in Florida, I ran away to join the circus at age 19. I lived in Hollywood, California for ten years and Southeast Asia for over twenty. I have acted on radio, stage, television and film. None of it has made me famous. (Well, I am somewhat of a third-world celebrity in Jakarta, Indonesia.) I have witnessed earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and monkey attacks. I have been swept out to sea. I have danced with dictator's wives. Riots, coup d'états, typhoons and killer floods–been there, done that. Now that I'm finally an adult, I've decided to put these childish things behind me by writing about them. It's safer. Only you, dear reader, can keep me out of harm's way by purchasing and telling everyone that you know about my wonderful books. Like most authors, I love it when a reader gives an honest review about my work. Please feel free to write a few lines somewhere.
