entry arrow7:19 AM | Jupiter and Banyaga



Juaniyo Arcellana reviews for the Philippine STAR two recent Philippine novels by authors I know and admire. One I've already read last summer during a much-delayed flight from Manila to Dumaguete, and one I'm eager to get my hands on: there's Katrina Tuvera's Martial Law domestic drama, The Jupiter Effect, and Charlson Ong's sweeping epic through Filipino Chinese history, Banyaga: A Song of War -- both published by Anvil. In a literary landscape where everybody knows everybody and serious reviewing often takes a backseat for friendship's sake, I get amazed by how Juaniyo gets away with steadfast (fearless?) opining.
