Maybe: Incidentally (the Satire Of Federico Mangahas)
|Author||Ruby K. Mangahas|
Maybe: Incidentally (The Satire of Federico Mangahas) is a collection of Fred Mangahas' Maybe essays, which appeared daily for 12 years (1928-1940) in the editorial page of The Tribune, and his Incidentally essays, which appeared for two years (1940-1941) in Philippines Herald, when he became the daily's magazine editor and columnist.
Back in the 1930's, Federico Mangahas was a name to be reckoned with. One of the most influential journalists of his time, he was the founder and first president of the Philippine Writers' League and the organizer of the Commonwealth Literary Contest. His column Maybe in Tribune has come to be regarded as the best column in the country.
"A columnist," in his own words, "is modest about his modesty. He is hospitable to all faiths, while keeping his own or accepting none; he is tolerant of all people, including fellow columnists and other fools." Along with S.P. Lopez, Federico Mangahas set the tone and temper of writing in the 1930's, decreeing that it should be socially conscious, committed, proletarian.
This book is a work of love, compiled and edited by his wife, Ruby K. Mangahas.
