Ricky lee’s new book

YES! (Philippines) - - STARGAZING -

At the launch of his new book, Kung Alam N’yo Lang: Mga Kuwen­tong Pam­bata para sa

mga Hindi na Bata, screen­writer ricky Lee told YeS! and our on­line af­fil­i­ate, PeP.ph, that he fre­quents the Fully booked chain of book­stores.

“And yet, hindi ko nakikita ang mga li­bro ko dito,” he pointed out. “Ac­tu­ally, no’ng sin­abi ng Vis­print, ‘Madi-dis­play na tayo maski sa Fully booked,’ natuwa ako, e. that’s one of the rea­sons why I said yes na Vis­print ang magdis­tribute la­hat, from B [ Para Kay B, his first novel], Trip to Quiapo [his scriptwrit­ing man­ual], and so on and so forth. So, nice. Meron pa rin sa Na­tional [book Store], Pre­cious ro­mance… At least, du­mami ang out­lets.” Kung Alam N’yo Lang is a col­lec­tion of sto­ries that tackle var­i­ous top­ics, rang­ing from the ex­is­tence of God to the con­cept of death. It also fea­tures il­lus­tra­tions by artists Kenikenken, Di­igii Da­guna, Jether Amar, and Ivan rev­er­ente.

Next on the plate of the ac­claimed writer of cin­e­matic gems such as Hi­mala, Bru­tal, and

Kar­nal is a book fea­tur­ing the screen­play of Moral and a howto guide on writ­ing a script, us­ing scenes and char­ac­ters from Moral as ex­am­ples.
