I'm happy to share my ninth published excerpt from my novel, People We Trust, which appears in the latest issue of Action, Spectacle. Reading the excerpt (or any of the nine excerpts already published in literary journals) will show you that this is a novel about the traumas inflicted by the Marcos dictatorship on ordinary people, and how these traumas continued to linger, unaddressed, in Philippine society until the next authoritarian came along. Many thanks to Adam Day for selecting this excerpt for publication! I am honored to share this space with Brandon Taylor, Octavio Quintanilla, and other writers and artists I admire. Read my excerpt here and the rest of the issue here.
