The Manila We Knew
|Author||Erlinda Enriquez Panlilio|
|Dimension||5 x 8, 230g|
This little volume is a valuable contribution to the lore that accumulates about every great city in the world-- part social history, part myth, and part love song.
Manila might be sinking under the weight of problems proclaimed every day by newspaper columnists and TV commentators.
It might be plagued by calamities, both natural and manmade.
Its historical monuments might be wrecked by unthinking politicians; its walls and bridges defaced by ugly posters and graffiti; its hapless pedestrians killed by reckless drivers and ineptly constructed billboards.
It will survive nonetheless, because people like the writers of this book will not give up on it.
These Manileñas will stand their ground.
Here is their testament to the city of their affections.
