Book review

Duran Duran, Imelda Marcos, and MeDuran Duran, Imelda Marcos, and Me by Lorina Mapa

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book made me laugh, cry and remember. How strange and marvellous to see parts of my own childhood drawn out, and to read in Mapa’s clear, honest prose some of my own thoughts and feelings that I’ve kept locked away. A shining example of how casting a look back can point the way forward.
