DoveLion: A Fairy Tale for Our Times (Eileen R. Tabios)
This review looks at Indigenous futurisms inherent in this slipstream novel by a Filipina author. The Indigenous value of "kapwa" informs the structure and content of this experiemental narrative work that includes embedded poetry, literary theory, history, political history and theory, and more. The author suggests how an alternative view of time allows for integration and synthesis rather than fragmentation.
