Ang Autobiografia ng Ibang Lady Gaga ilulunsad sa UP Diliman

Wed, 05/06/2015 - 17:03 -- admin

Lunsad-aklat ngayong Sabado (9 May 2015) sa Auditorium ng UP College of Mass Communication, UP Diliman, mula 5NH hanggang 8NG and librong Ang Autobiografia ng Ibang Lady Gaga ni Jack Alvarez. Hindi parang pagmememorya ng song lyrics ang pag-alala sa mga karanasan, kundi parang pagnonovena. Parang ritwal. Sa isang confessional na paraan ipapasilip ng may-akda ang kanyang mga partikular na karanasan at buhay ng isang migranteng manggagawa sa Saudi Arabia. Mga personal na sanaysay na ikukumpisal ang pangungulila at samu’t saring problema at balita mula sa pamilya sa Pinas.
