Lorina Mapa

A graphic memoir about growing up in the Philippines in the 1980s with Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Imelda Marcos and the EDSA Revolution. After moving to Canada as a teenager Mapa returned to Manilla as an adult for the funeral of her father, who died suddenly in a car accident. His death sparks the need to come to terms with her past. She includes themes of religion, culture, politics, social class and personal experiences of the 1986 People Power Revolution which made headlines around the world. The story weaves between her adolescence in Manilla and her present in Montreal. It is a graphic love letter to her parents, family, friends, country of birth and perhaps even to herself.
