Paghuhunos

Ellen L. Sicat


Winner, Madrigal-Gonzalez Best First Book Award, Literature, 2002

“Wala akong ibang alam na paraan ng pagkukuwento kundi tulad lamang ng sa impo ko: kapalagayang-loob niya ang kakuwentuhan, ka-talamitang-dila, ‘ika nga … bagamat tinangka kong maging matapat sa nobelang Paghuhunos, maaaring ang aking pagkaalaala ang di naging matapat. May mga banggit sa kasaysayan ang nobela, posibleng nagkagulo-gulo ang petsa. Dapat nanaliksik ako, pero masisira ang nais kong kalabasan ng nobela: isang pagbubuklat ng gunita—may labis, may kulang.”—Ellen L. Sicat

Pagkatao at Teknolohiya: Mga Isyu ng Etika sa Makabagong Medisina

Leonardo D. De Castro


Winner, National Book Award, Philosophy, 1998

“Kapansin-pansin ngayon sa mga pahayagan, radyo, at telebisyon ang mga balita tungkol sa aborsyon, euthanasia, assisted suicide, cloning, teknolohiyang pangreproduksiyon, genetic engineering, at iba pang paksa na kinatatagpuan ng nag-uumapaw na bugtong tungkol sa katayuan at hinaharap ng tao. Sa harap ng mga ito, hindi maaaring manatiling mga tagapanood lamang ang mga pangkaraniwang tao. Kailangang masangkot ang pangkaraniwang tao sa mga pag-aaral at pagpapasya sapagkat siya man ay may malaking taya sa mga maaaring mangyari. Hangarin ng aklat na ito na makatulong sa paglilinaw ng mga isyung tinutukoy.”—Mula sa paunang salita

Pagsalubong sa Habagat

Lamberto E. Antonio


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1986

Also published by Kaunlaran Press, 1986.

Nagsimulang makilala si Lamberto E. Antonio sa masugid niyang pagtataguyod ng modernismo sa tulang Pilipino. Sa paglabas ng kanyang Hagkis ng Talahib (1980), naging ganap ang pagkilala sa natatangi niyang kakayahang isataludtod ang “damdaming naninigid at paniwalang pinakalirip.” Ang Pagsalubong sa Habagat ang pinakahuling yugto ng kanyang masagisag at maharayang pagsisiwalat.

Pagsubok sa Ilang: Ikaapat ng Mukha ni Satanas

Tony Perez


Winner, National Book Award, Theology and Religion, 2006

“Written creatively and with uncommon clarity, this book critically rereads the temptations in the desert as a process of psycho-spiritual integration involving Jesus’ descent to his unconscious and the reabsorption of his Shadow. Satan as the “shadow” is non-dualistically presented here as a force that is integrally within us, which we must face in order to move toward greater individuation. Pagsubok sa Ilang indeed contributes not only to the small collection of academic studies devoted to the figure of Satan but also to the possible significations Satan can assume in Christian life.”—Agnes M.

Pambungad sa Metapisika

Roque J. Ferriols, SJ


Winner, National Book Award, Philosophy, 1991

Noong 1969, nagsimulang magturo ng pilosopiya si Padre Ferriols sa wikang Filipino. Nag-iisa siyang nangahas na bigkasin ang tunay na umiiral, o “Meron” sa katutubong wika, sa panahong Ingles lamang ang naghaharing wika sa mga pamantasan at inakala pang tanging wika ng pag-iisip. Sa pamamagitan ng tahasang paglalarawan at pagpapaliwanag ng karanasan sa wikang Filipino, naipakita ni Padre Ferriols kung paano kumakagat o nag-uugat ito sa tunay na umiiral o “Meron” sa bukod-tanging paraan. Pinayaman din ni Padre Ferriols ang katutubong kalinangan nang isulat niya ang kanyang Pambungad sa Metapisika.

Panahon ng Hapon: Sining sa Digmaan, Digmaan sa Sining


Edited by Gina V. Barte


Winner, National Book Award, Anthology, 1992

This book is an anthology of essays dealing with Philippine art and culture in a historical perspective: the Second World War and the Japanese Occupation of the Philippines, covering the period 1942–1945. These essays are studies by contemporary scholars of Philippine history and the arts whose findings on the subject, hitherto dismissed as uneventful in terms of artistic and cultural production, yield fresh information and insights that re-evaluate and reinterpret the conclusions offered by earlier studies on the subject

Pangalay: Traditional Dances and Related Folk Artistic Expressions

Ligaya Fernando-Amilbangsa


Winner, National Book Award, Art, 1983

“In Pangalay, Ligaya Fernando-Amilbangsa has gathered material for the dance historian, the dance teacher, the dancer. It seems inevitable, however, that her audience will expand to include the choreographer in search of the bases of abstraction and creation; the historian seeking the cultural artifacts that mark historical time; the anthropologist and sociologist exploring sociocultural settings for human behavior; and certainly anyone wishing to understand still another facet of being Filipino.”—Doreen G.

Papa’s House, Mama’s House

Jean Lee C. Patindol

Illustrated by Mark Ramsel N. Salvatus III


Grand Prize, PBBY Writers’ Prize, Children’s Book, 2004

“Many adults believe that some subjects are ‘not for children’ and the issue of separated families is one of these. Yet children are perceptive observers who wonder and feel confused at why they or their peers do not live with both a mother and a father. This story about such a family, told from the voice of a child, responds to children’s questions in a simple and sensitive way.”—Liane Peña-Alampay, Ph.D., developmental psychologist, Ateneo de Manila University

People of the Philippine Cordillera: Photographs, 1934-1956

Eduardo Masferre, Jill Gale De Villa, Ma. Teresa Garcia-Farr, Gladys Montgomery Jones


Winner, National Book Award, Art, 1988

From 1934 to 1956, self-taught Filipino photographer Eduardo Masferré dedicated his talent to recording images of the ancient way of life of the indigenous people in the heart of the Philippine Cordillera mountains. Because of the historic importance and the artistic quality of Masferré’s photographs, it was imperative that his life’s work be compiled, published, and made available to the public and to students of Philippine cultural heritage. Several institutions participated in this project: the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, the Department of Education, Culture and Sports, the Cultural Center of the Philippines Museo ng Kalinangang Pilipino, and Mobil Philippines.

People on Guerrero Street

Leoncio P. Deriada


Co-Winner, National Book Award, Fiction in a Foreign Language, 2004

People on Guerrero Street is a novel set in Guerrero Street of Davao City, during the school year 1953–1954. The author was himself a junior in the Davao City High School at that time. The book was cited by the Manila Critics Circle “for portraying life in a ‘small town’ transforming quietly into a big city, with every growing-up event magnified beyond reason and passion, where sex is mistaken for love and love for life, until death brings both protagonist and reader back to semi-urban life in an unreal city with real people in it.”

Philippine political cartoons gained full expression during the American era. Filipino artists recorded national attitudes toward the coming of the Americans as well as the changing mores and times.

Artist-writer Alfredo Roces, who designed the book, contributes an essay on Philippine graphic satire of the period.

Pidgin Levitations: Poetic Chroma Texts

Ricardo M. De Ungria


Winner, National Book Award, Book Design, 2004

Book design by Veni L. Llowa and Ricardo de Ungria

This is a truly remarkable work of revision and recreation of his Uncollected Poems 1981–1989: revision as “an art in itself” since “no poem is ever finished,” and recreation as “my old self co-creating with me the poems of the past that were in their nascent state” (the word recreation also comprising “the ideas of leisure and sports”). The poems in Pidgin Levitations, says Dr. Gemino Abad, show a poet’s exemplary course from an aesthetics of “esoteric allusions … and mystifying subtleties and obscurities” to a poetics of ordinary language and ordinary subjects.”

“These essays were not written to please you nor to entertain you. There was only one motivation—to hack at the jungles in our minds, the wild undergrowths of our miseducation. To stop the patronizing attitude of flabby minds which readily appropriate the foreigners’ view of what we are: embodiment of SIR (smooth interpersonal relations) and deeply dyed in utang na loob—traits which make lambs of us. They would make us believe that we are willing victims of their rapacity.”—Edilberto Alegre, in the foreword

One motif has to do with the paradoxical nature of language: that is, while words already mean before one speaks, yet other shores seem within reach where the words do not break. The other motif deals with our people’s agonies and exultations through the last years of the Marcos dictatorship during which time Truth, father of language, took vengeance openly.

Poems: Selected and New (1982-1997)

Simeon Dumdum Jr.


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1999

“Dumdum has retained the primal sense of wonder and wisdom that canny old children hold as a kindly talisman, which poetry mutates into a paradoxical innocence described by another poet as ‘brave as a bomb to hurl against the world.’”—Edith L. Tiempo

Points of Departure: Esays on Christianity, Power, and Social Change

Mario V. Bolasco

Edited by Edicio Dela Torre


Winner, National Book Award, Essay, 1994

“No other Filipino scholar to my knowledge is better equipped than the late Prof. Mario Bolasco to analyze the convergence of Marxism, Christianity, and folk religions in the Philippine revolutionary movement. Besides an intimate knowledge of its history and the nuances of diverse ideologies, he possessed an exceptional skill to decipher the convoluted language of theoreticians, theologians, and indigenous mystics, and explain them with sympathy and in terms that make sense to ordinary mortals.”—Francisco Nemenzo, former president, University of the Philippines

Porn Again: Midlife Outtakes and Mistakes

Jose Javier Reyes


Winner, National Book Award, Essay, 2003

“Is Jose Javier Reyes a pornographer, as the administration of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo branded him? As far as I can tell, Joey’s crime was that he told the truth as he saw it. He does have the disconcerting habit of telling the truth, as this collection amply demonstrates. If honesty and directness are considered forms of pornography, and this book is the work of a pornographer, then we should all aspire to be porn again.”—Jessica Zafra

Postmodern Filming of Literature: Sources, Contexts, and Adaptations

Joyce L. Arriola


Winner, National Book Award, Film, 2007

“We who love cinema are fortunate to have Arriola’s contribution to film studies. So long as there are critics who would subject cinema to a rigorous scholarship, we should not be concerned about obituaries announcing the death of the Filipino film industry. Pinoy critics like Arriola will keep cinema—our own cinema, in particular—alive, through the force of their intellectual engagement.”— Clodualdo del Mundo Jr., in the foreword

Prison and Beyond: Selected Poems 1958-1983

Jose Ma. Sison


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 1984

“A critic once observed that the poetry of Teresa of Avila is suffused with God. In an analogous way, the poetry of Sison is suffused with the idea of revolution. Even the purely descriptive poems, or those which appear to be simply exercises in wit and metaphor, nature or objects or situations inevitably relate themselves to certain aspects of the revolutionary struggle.”—Petronilo Bn. Daroy

This volume by award-winning journalist Tirol is about Filipinos who made headlines because they dared—to challenge the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos; to defy convention with their choice of lifestyle; to blaze trails in business, in journalism, in theater, in fashion; to liberate themselves from oppressive relationships and movements.
