The Department of English and Comparative Literature is pleased to announce that the special fiction issue of the Journal of English Studies and Comparative Literature is now available on the UPD Journals website. Titled BRAVURA: An Anthology of 21ST Century Philippine Fiction and edited by Anna Felicia Sanchez, this special issue highlights the astounding skill, range, and storytelling vision of thirteen award-winning authors: John Bengan, Glenn Diaz, Gabriela Lee, Lakan Umali, Mia Tijam, Paul S. de Guzman, Kristine Reynaldo, Francis Paolo Quina, Sandra Nicole Roldan, Lystra Aranal, Gino Dizon, Mo Francisco, and Christine V. Lao. This anthology hopes to be both a vital addition to the pool of literary resources for teachers and students of 21st century Philippine literature, and a sampler of bold literary talent that engages with contemporary cultural and political landscapes.
