IN THE PRESS
Talusan doesn’t uphold “The Body Papers” as the ultimate representation of what it means to be a Fil-Am, but rather a conduit to show how every body is multilayered with stories to tell
I love the back and forth in time, and how each chapter circles through multiple time periods, and how each chapter builds on the next to create a more complete story. It feels like how our brains work and store memories.
Talusan’s essays explore various definitions of body: the physical body, the idea of presence or visibility, the tongue and language, the eyes and sight or vision, the loss of physical parts of the body, but also the body of family, the body of the church, the body of a writer’s work, the body of a person’s heritage.
