Katrina Stuart Santiago updates her thoughts on what remains relevant and what remains fictional for women in this side of the third world.
Of Love and Other Lemons is a collection that plays with the form of the personal essay, turning it on its head, insisting on the we versus the i, the distant versus the familiar, even as it can only be about the persona/l. As such it is honest but impersonal, particularly of one but speaking of (if not for) the other, creative nonfiction premised on what remains fictional for women on this side of the third world. Here are, and ultimately, essays about being raised a girl in Manila, feminist in the academe, woman struggling with/in the silences and noise of nation everyday.
