Lee’s memorable masterpieces, which include screenplays, fiction, non-fiction, novels, and plays, have found their way into Filipino culture. Early reviews about Bahay ni Marta invite the reader to enter a world where “the seeming whimsical meets layers of truths so deftly and deeply woven. With its alchemy of fantastical scenarios and relatable emotions, the reader can simply sing in recognition and insight towards the last few pages.”

This is Lee’s third novel after the hugely popular romance Para kay B and horror-inspired Si Amapola sa 65 na Kabanata. The latest book was also described as “a heart-gripping tale of love, transgression and redemption.”

The book will launch on March 10, 10am, at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) Claro M. Recto Hall. It features a program with special production numbers and Lee’s own revelation on what went on into the making of the book. The latest novel, as well as previous published works of the author, will be sold at discounted prices. The book signing follows after the program.
