Celebrate the freedom to read with recent Filipiniana releases

I have a new story published on GMA News Online:

Celebrate the freedom to read with recent Filipiniana releases

The book I’m most excited about in that list is “Manila Noir”, which I started reading last weekend.

I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never read anything by Jessica Hagedorn, but her introduction to this anthology alone really got me interested in her writing. If anyone has any suggestions for which Hagedorn book I should read first, please do leave a comment. 🙂
