The Impersonal is Political

On Pacman: My Story of Hope, Resilience, and Never-Say-Never Determination (2010) by Manny Pacquiao 
The story of Manny Pacquiao’s life is told, or so we are told, by Pacquiao himself, in this “personal autobiography” written (with a certain Timothy James) in exotified English. Doubt surrounds the lyrical and disembodied narrative voice, which confuses rather clarifies. Part biography, part fiction, totally shameless advertising. 

Paperback. Pasig: Anvil.
