Contrappasso Goes to the Philippines: A Final Recap

15090916841_4f28edd42e_o copy 2

Contrappasso has a special relationship with the literature of the Philippines through the enthusiasms of our frequent contributor and occasional guest editor Noel King.

Earlier in 2016, we journeyed through the contemporary Filipino literary scene via in-depth reviews of recent books, interviews with key writers, short stories and novel extracts, as well as Noel King’s presentations at the Sixth International Philippine Literature Conference held in Davao, Mindanao on September 20-21, 2015.

Here is a final round-up of all the installments of that special online series. Some pieces had never before appeared in our publication, while others had appeared in earlier issues. The various pieces constitute, in a way, a special virtual 10th issue of Contrappasso.

EDITED BY NOEL KING & MATTHEW ASPREY GEAR
