Actress Laura Huggins reviews a Meritage Press release, STAGE PRESENCE for OOV. I'm really pleased that in the first paragraph -- excerpted below -- the reviewer got it! Click on it for whole review:
How often have history books told the story of another's culture, as a construct and not necessarily the way it actually happened? When the opportunity presents for members of non-dominant culture to speak to dominant society about their actual experiences-the others' point-of-view prompts dialogue that can enrich the lives of both.

It's the same impetus underlying PINOY POETICS which Meritage Press also released....and, actually, the seed of these particular approaches is my VERY FIRST BOOK!
