Perks of BeingPetibourgeois
(Musings of a Third World Radical)David Michael M. San Juan
This is not a novel. This is not a scholarly work if by “scholarly work” you mean “a
comprehensive essay using the MLA or APA citation style
.” This is a collection of 
essays, even fragments of essays at times, on almost anything under the Third Worldsun. Most essays are aimed at making sense of things, events, peoples etc. in the ThirdWorld but since our world is just one, some Third World issues in fact encompass FirstWorld ones. Hence, while this is basically a collection of musings by a Third Worldradical, First World things, events, peoples etc. also have a place inside its pages. Theauthor would try his best to update this continuing project, albeit possibly at an irregular interval.
Why “Perks of Being Petibourgeois”? We petibourgeois people have this unusual
perk of having some time to reflect on issues that matter without worrying much aboutour bread (or rice ration) for tomorrow. Hence, we might as well consider expressingourselves freely as I had attempted in this mini-collection.Comments, questions, reactions, suggestions etc. are welcome via hisFacebook: www.facebook.com/lastrepublic or Twitter: lastrepublic or email:dmmsanjuan@gmail.com.
One final revelation: this is partly inspired by Antonio Gramsci’s “PrisonNotebooks.” But obviously, this is not Gramsci speaking. This is me.
