Contextualized against the early 1970s, during the First Quarter Storm, What Now, Ricky? offers a thought-provoking analysis of the interrelated sociopolitical forces that shaped the nations history during this bloody period. Taking center stage is Ricky, a university student from Tondo who sees how iniquitous social forces have shaped the lives not only of his family, community, but of society, spinning out of control, as well. Ricky traces the blighted life of the people to powerful institutions—politics, the law, the military, among others—and the far-reaching and ultimately disastrous consequences of their baleful influence.The novels depiction of the tumult and bloodbath, rendered through the consciousness of a young, idealistic student leader, is Lingats own version of the bildungsroman, with distinctly political underpinnings.
