“Bamboo Bed” chronicles (the author’s) life in the immediate pre-Marcos and Martial Law eras as he moved in and out of the country’s jails—at one point sharing the same prison cell as the historian William Henry Scott—while circulating among an impressive circle of Manila’s gangsters, artists, ex-rebels, bohemians, drug addicts, politicians and assorted cognoscenti. “Bamboo Bed” is intelligently and beautifully written, a rare document by a post-colonial American who has moved between the centers and margins of power. In this account of the tempestuous antecedents of late 20th century Manila, Mac gives us no less than a visceral map of the modern Philippines that is at once hallucinatory and prophetic.—Vicente L. Rafael, Univ. of Washington, Seattle
