Talinghaga ng Gana: Ang Banal sa mga Piling Tulang Tagalog ng Ika-20 Siglo

Rebecca T. Anonuevo


Winner, National Book Award, Literary Criticism, 2003

“In scintillating prose, and demonstrating both startling critical acumen and solid scholarship, Añonuevo’s study of the workings of gana (drive, desire, energy, interiority, soul) in modern Tagalog poetry, in the poet’s own life and work, and in everyday language use, sets a high standard in Philippine literature studies and critique. It is a fine example of the magic or music that happens when a poet ventures into criticism and makes of it a specimen of literary creation and the mysterious workings of the creative spirit.”—Oscar Campomanes, literary critic and scholar

Telex Moon

Cirilo F. Bautista


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1981

“The most fruitful way of writing an epic poem based on history is to treat historical data creatively, that is, fictionalize them. The objective is to make a poem out of history—that is, to reconfigure it through artistic and aesthetic means so that the product emerges as a pleasurable interpretation of history but not contradicting history or distorting it.”—from the foreword of The Trilogy of Saint Lazarus

Testament and Other Stories

Katrina Tuvera


Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 2002

“Testament and Other Stories is a collection exploring the complexities that motivate people and drive their relationships. In writing that is subtle, ironic, sometimes dark, and often sorrowful, Tuvera renders characters who are too real for comfort, who make us confront our own humanity with the questions that scare us. On the one hand, she accomplishes a rare universality and depth; on the other hand, she offers clarity of insight on Pinoy culture and our psyche. We read her stories and cannot help but be moved.”—Isabelita O. Reyes

The Charmer’s Box: Poetry

Edith Tiempo


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1993

“My mother (Edith L. Tiempo) writes poetry much in the same way the violets in her garden grow—and the other living, well-loved things in her care, as well: the furious secret mysterious processes taking place unobtrusively underneath the carefully tended balance of sun and shade and a gentle hand, with logs of open space. At marvelously unpredictable intervals, my mother’s poems appeared, breaking into life with a certain wondering silence at the heart of each of them, and no distracted, inattentive look to signal their coming. There’s a singular joyfulness in this collection that is its best achievement.”—Rowena Tiempo-Torrevillas

The Dominicans and the Philippine Revolution, 1896–1903


Edited by Fidel Villaroel, OP


Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, Editing, 1999

Translated by Luis Antonio Mañeru and Fidel Villaroel

All colonial wars of independence have produced two kinds of people, the national heroes, on one side, and the villains, on the other. In the case of the Philippine Revolution of 1896, not a few historians and people have nourished the idea that the villains were, more than any other Spaniards, the friars. Professor Fidel Villarroel, Spaniard and Dominican, who has lived for 42 years in the Philippines, tries to appear not as an interested party in that struggle, but as a witness to history.

Bienvenido N. Santos

Joseph V. Landy, SJ


Winner, National Book Award, Theology and Religion, 2000

Across the meadow comes a call, loud and clear. It is the voice of the shepherd, tending his flock. The shepherd cares for his sheep.

If one of his flock goes astray, he braves the dark night to find it—no matter the cost—and brings it home. The gospel story comes alive in this marvelous collection of homilies written by the Jesuit preacher and teacher Joseph V. Landy.

The Tragedy of the Revolution

Adrian E. Cristobal


Winner, National Book Award, History, 1996
Winner, National Book Award, Book Design, 1997

Book design by BG Y. Hernandez. The University of the Philippines Press published the book in 2005.

“A polemic on revolution and heroism” is how author Cristobal describes The Tragedy of the Revolution, a gripping account of Andres Bonifacio’s life and death in the Katipunan, the organization he founded and led in the revolution against Spain. There are no historical “discoveries” here, for the story of Bonifacio’s betrayal and brutal “execution” is familiar to every schoolboy. What Cristobal has done, with wit, wisdom, and elegant expression, is to locate Bonifacio’s fate within the context of the “larger tragedy” of the Filipino people

We hope that through these stories you come to see some familiar places with a new eye, learn about other places you might never have heard of before, and meet some very interesting people along the way—the best reasons to travel.”—Authors’ note

Txt-ing Selves: Cellphones and Philippine Modernity

Raul Pertierra, Eduardo R. Ugarte


Winner, National Book Award, Social Science, 2002

Txt-ing Selves explores the impact of mobile-phone usage in the Philippines. It uses the theoretical concepts of global modernity and complex connectivity to shape and inform the interpretation of data culled from questionnaires, focused group discussions, in-depth interviews, and archival research. It traces as well the origins of the Filipinos’ preoccupation with the cellphone and their preference for texting to the chronic lack of modern communicative technologies and their desire to maintain contact with significant others in an unstable, unpredictable, and transforming world.
