Gago pala si Ninoy?

(Ang sumusunod ay cut and paste mula sa blog ni sonofaditch. salamat sa oras mo tol! astig ka!)

That's one of the things I learned from Norman Wilwayco's Mondomanila (Kung Paano Ko Inayos ang Buhok Ko Matapos ang Mahaba-haba ring Paglalakbay) 2002 Palanca Grand Prize Awardee.

Critics have compared Wilwayco's novel to Maynila sa Kuko ng Liwanag and Trainspotting. Personally, the novel reads like Catcher in the Rye -- only with drugs, LOTS of sex, and starring a vengeful, sociopathic ECE graduate from UP. hahahaha

I spent the whole night reading through this sordid tale of lives being lived out in the squalor of Manila. Depressing, enlightening, shocking (as in garapalan walang preno) but oftentimes laugh-out-loud funny, it's a damn fine novel -- if you don't mind a generous helping of Filipino invectives and obcenities splattered around the pages. Para akong nagcrash-course...Pagmumura 101 hahahaha
