Daisy Nueve: New Stories Weird, Wonderful, Whatever

Menchu Aquino Sarmiento

Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 2003

“Menchu Aquino Sarmiento’s Daisy Nueve is truly a remarkable first collection of stories. Her firm, relentless grasp of the Filipino experience; her masterful use of the language to shape the human drama; her ironic vision which has often a hard, sardonic edge—these render her stories deeply moving and at times disturbing. She is without doubt a fresh, exciting, and powerful voice in Filipino fiction in English today.” —Gemino H. Abad

Dark Hours

Conchita Cruz

Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 2003

“At this historical moment when the issue of how to respond to suffering is so fraught as to leave us speechless, the poems of Conchitina Cruz have found a way to speak. Here in this starkly beautiful volume, she has discovered a language sufficient to the terrors and the joys of the contemporary. The highest praise that can be given to any work of literature—and Dark Hours is most surely literature—is that it is contemporary. This is a very remarkable book.”—Lynn Emanuel

Decimal Places: Poems

Ricardo De Ungria

Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1991

A Filipino’s first encounter with America is at the heart of this collection. He stayed there (St. Louis, Missouri) for three years, meeting people and making friends, traveling whenever he could, and cultivating the peripatetic and peregrine in himself, and gathering a rich hoard of experiences that found expression not only in this book but also in his subsequent books. This book dramatizes one Filipino’s first flush of excitement at being in the land of his neighbors’ dreams, and the experiences left an indelible mark on his impressionable spirit.

Disturbing Climate

Edited by Jose Villarin, SJ

Winner, National Book Award, Science, 2001

“Most of the current scientific and political debates that rage on the climate front are focused on how we as a global community are to exercise that responsibility for a changing climate in the 21st century. The Philippines is by all means actively engaged in this global endeavor. This book documents that engagement in a collection of essays that can very well mark the beginning of a Philippine response to the complex issue of climate change.” —Jose Villarin, SJ, in the introduction

Dreamweavers: Selected Poems, 1976–1986

Marjorie Evasco

Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1987

“Reading her poetry is often like dropping into ocean deeps; there we see the first elements roiled and disturbed out of their primordial sluggishness by the intrusion of her imagination on its rampant voyage of discovery. Each poem turns out to be a metaphor of the seeking and the struggle to master and to freeze into shape what is essentially the process of becoming.”—Edith L. Tiempo

Driven: How to Make It in Philippine Business

Asian Institute of Management Master in Business Management Class of 1971,

Co-Winner, National Book Award, Business and Economics, 2004

Driven imparts the wisdom accumulated by the Asian Institute of Management Class of 1971 to the current generation of Filipino executives and managers. There are scores of textbooks, guides, and manuals on how to conduct oneself in the corporate world, how to succeed in business, and others, but Driven is different for three reasons. One, it is specifically about the Philippine business environment. Two, Driven is based not on theory, but on the experience of the class members. Three, it has a personal voice. Class ‘71 is directly addressing the present generation and sharing its wealth of experience.

Duet for EDSA: Looking Back, Looking Forward

Edited by Lorna Kalaw Tirol

Winner, National Book Award, Documentation, 1996

Ten years after the great victory of people power that toppled the Marcos dictatorship, the question must be asked: Has EDSA made a difference at all to the Philippines and to Filipinos in the past 10 years? That is the question this volume attempts to answer. By publishing this volume, the Foundation for Worldwide People Power (FWWPP) hopes to provoke discussion, perhaps debate, on the issues raised by the writers, and to inspire positive action from the citizenry, perhaps from the government as well.
