White Lady, Black Christ
Charlson Ong’s White Lady, Black Christ is a thriller involving a religious, cross-cultural controversy that challenges perceptions on faith, love, and identity, where the almost comic treatment of ignorance and poverty results in a razor-sharp perception of the Filipino psyche.
"White Lady, Black Christ is vintage Charlson Ong, a literary thriller that deftly incorporates humor, history, social commentary, and endogenous ethnography, but above all, a love letter to to storied Quiapo and its Black Nazarene and other denizens." - Caroline S. Hau, literary critic, author of Tiempo Muerto: A Novel.
