The Kobayashi Maru of Love (4th Edition)

The Kobayashi Maru of Love
By Carljoe Javier
ISBN: 971-0545-17-5
Creative Non-fiction novel
SRP:  Php200.00
Language: English

The Kobayashi Maru of Love is a book about love, in all its maddening, inscrutable, exquisite permutations: requited, unrequited, elusive, gone missing, left for dead, held hostage, lost, found. But it is ultimately a book about women, one woman, at least, and at first, then several others, gorgeous and fleeting and elusive and imaginary, and the severities of the pull they have on our grotty, awkward male selves... Self-help, diary entries, encyclopedia of boy things, stumblebum comedy of manners, rom-com gone wrong, RPG walkthrough, horror story. The Kobayashi Maru of Love is all this and funny as all hell, too.
