Sa Daigdig ng Kontradiksiyon: Mga Saling-Wika

Jose F. Lacaba


Winner, National Book Award, Translation, 1991

This book translated into Filipino the works of W. H. Auden, Charles Baudelaire, William Blake, and Bertold Brecht; of Filipina Lorena Barrios; and of three anonymously written works including the Desiderata. Writes Conrado de Quiros: “Much is lost in Pete Lacaba’s translation of Great Poetry into Pilipino: the fear of poetry, the fear of greatness, and the fear of Pilipino. Everything else is gained.”

Sakit ng Kalingkingan: 100 Dagli sa Edad ng Krisis

Rolando B. Tolentino


Winner, National Book Award, Personal Anthology, 2006

Ang sakit ng kalingkingan ay maaaring sintomas ng mas malalang sakit ng katawan o epekto ng maliit sa malaking bahagi o kabuuan nito.

In 1973 he submitted to the Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature what he could put together under the title Salvaged Poems—this was before the word “salvaged” acquired the peculiar Filipino meaning it now has, of being executed summarily or extrajudicially.”—Jose Lacaba, in the second edition’s editor’s note

Samsara

Allan Popa


Winner, National Book Award, Poetry, 2002

“Released from the wheel of each poem’s body is a fierce voice defying the restless shift of shadows, turning yet once again the weight of grief palpable in passing forms. Samsara is Allan Popa’s desire for a metaphysics sung into shape. Every poem in this collection is an invitation to fasten the consciousness to the cycle of desire’s endless reincarnations.”—Marjorie Evasco

Russell Molina

Illustrated by Hubert Fucio


Grand Prize, PBBY Alcala Illustrator’s Prize, Children’s and Young Reader’s Literature, 2003
Grand Prize, PBBY Salanga Writer’s Prize, Children’s Literature, 2003

The boy in our story belongs to a different kind of family. He has a dozen brothers he looks up to—all of whom look different from one another! Much as their family is an uncommon one, their joy becomes extraordinary because it comes 12 times over! Adults may use this story to illustrate the reality of lost and orphaned children and what their lives are like inside a children’s home. The story helps to teach children about the importance of family, the role each member fulfills, and how each one contributes to the well-being of the others.

Kailan nagiging walang habag ang alaala, kailan ito makatarungan? Kailan ito lumalatay, kailan magaan at humahagod ang taglay na kabutihan? At tayo bilang nakikinig sa kaniyang salaysay, paano tayo tumatanggap—ano ang ating “natatandaan”?

Lamberto E. Antonio


Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, Children’s and Young Reader’s Literature, 2001
Winner, Gawad Surian ng Wikang Pambansa, 1982

The story is adapted from “Makisig the Little Hero of Mactan” by Gemma Cruz Araneta, which won the first prize in a children’s-story-writing contest. Makisig shows qualities desirable in a good child: bravery, industry, a sense of initiative, and a habit of being early. Because of his zeal to help and please his parents, he would get up early and sail to fish for breakfast. It was during one such trip that, from a distance, he sighted the big ships of foreign invaders. He rowed quickly back to his village, ran past the guards of Datu Lapu Lapu and informed him of what he had seen.

Silence

Randolf S. David, Jaime Zobel


Winner, National Book Award, Book Design, 2002

The book was designed by Francisco Dopy Doplon

“This book of 19 essays woven from the raw material of interviews is not so much about silence itself as it is about lives seen through the prism of solitude and shared from the fullness of self-awareness. Some of the subjects are celebrities in their own right. Others are individuals who have sometimes led difficult and heroic lives. Silence has helped them to see the beauty in everyday life, to tame their private demons, deal with loneliness, or come to terms with the ugly and painful side of living.”—Randolf David

“In early 1991 we sat down to discuss the exciting possibilities of engaging in conversation women who we considered key figures in the shaping of the tradition of Philippine poetry in English from 1900 to 1990. We envisioned a book that would be informed not only by the issues of gender and creativity, but also one that would dialogue these issues from two points of reference: that of a scholar’s interest in the published literary texts; and that of a creative writer’s concern for the creative process.”—Marjorie Evasco and Edna Zapanta Manlapaz

Ninotchka Rosca


Winner, National Book Award, Fiction, 1988

An endless festival amidst an endless war is the central image of this novel about the Philippines of the Marcos era, a time of brutality, treachery, and betrayed passion. Three young people arrive on the island of K___ for the annual festival. In the second section, the novel moves back in time, on a headlong, magical, sometimes hallucinatory reprise of Filipino history and the history of the families of the three young people. Finally, in the third section, once again, the novel is about the festival, and the novel reaches its shattering conclusion.

Still Life

There is nothing ‘dead’ in my compositions; on the contrary, my photography praises ‘life.’ Let us say that my subject matter is ‘alive’ but that I have captured a fleeting moment of its existence, a moment that can never be repeated.”—Jaime Zobel de Ayala, in the preface

“When work on Subli began, we had modest goals. We wanted to enter a dance, take it apart, look at the pieces, and put them back, all properly labeled, to present to the reader. But as we proceeded, we began to discover that we were not in possession of a static object or corpus that could and would stand for dissection. Our ‘object’ led us in strange, unforeseen directions. It had a will, a life, and most of all, a voice, or to be more exact, voices, of its own.”—Elena Rivera Mirano

Supremo: The Story of Andres Bonifacio

Sylvia Mendez-Ventura

Illustrated by Edgardo Fernandez


Winner, Gintong Aklat Award, Children’s and Young Reader’s Literature, 2002

Unlike Rizal, who left behind volumes of correspondence, Bonifacio wrote little and lost most of his possessions in a fire. Even the whereabouts of his remains are unknown. Through exhaustive research, Sylvia Mendez Ventura has pieced together the largely undocumented life of Bonifacio—from his humble roots to his tragic execution at the hands of his own Katipunero brothers.
