The Manila Review Vol. 1 Issue 4
The Manila Review (MR) is a quarterly non-profit publication that aims to map the ideas that shape public discussion in the Philippines. Through review essays of recent and outstanding works of nonfiction and fiction, film, and art, it serves as a living record of changes in politics, the humanities, the sciences, and their intersections.
In Issue 4, Caroline Hau reviews books by Gina Apostol and F Sionil Jose, Sylvia Estrada-Claudio on the Querida anthology, Nicole Curato on Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In, and Janus Nolasco on Marivi Soliven’s The Mango Bride. Also includes essays by Nathan Quimpo on corruption, Joel David on local film festivals, Job de Leon on “puso” in basketball, Patricio Abinales on Marxism in the Philippines, and Katrina Macapagal on street art.
In the Book Bound section, Karina Bolasco of Anvil Publishing shares her experience of being a publisher. For the #Homework section, in collaboration with Planting Rice, Lena Cobangbang writes about what’s good and bad within the local art scene.
