About the book: Whether you dig politics or not, you’ll find this political album entertaining because it’s chockfull of narrative, profiles, real-life dramas, observations of our society, studies of our culture. And what a nostalgia trip, too, for many of today’s readers.
Remember when ancient Amang Rodriguez dyed his locks black? Remember those naughty jokes on Roger de la Rosa’s “untimely withdrawal”? Remember the Macapagal-Marcos battle of biographies? Remember the party conventions when B-girls shared the limelight with NP and LP, and political life indeed was a cabaret, old chum?
In this book the bad old days live again. Here’s a wealth of detail for the biographer, a wealth of material for the historian. And for the common reader, a wealth of good old dirty fun.
