This Shoes Are Made for Reading, Manila Bulletin, June 16, 2008

I was beyond honored when “Pink Shoes” and “If the Shoe Fits” were reviewed in the Manila Bulletin in an article called “This Shoes Are Made for Reading.” Read the whole review here. Here’s an excerpt:

Atienza’s strength is in her ability to write confrontations, and while “Pink Shoes” has a particularly delicious one that involves an inebriated Dina pouring gin over the aforementioned bitchy wedding planner’s head, it is only in “If the Shoe Fits” that she uses it to the hilt.

Shorter, sleeker, and more mature than “Pink Shoes”, “If the Shoe Fits” takes Atienza’s strength and expands it beyond the
usual heroine-meets-villainess encounter. In “If the Shoe Fits”, confrontations are not just telenovela-type encounters, they can also be touching moments of vulnerability between characters who love each other so much but just can’t seem to find the right way to show how they feel.
