Gotita de Dragon and other Stories by Nick Joaquin

In Gotita de Dragon and other Stories—a collection of five short stories for both young and old—National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin uses his whimsy and his sense of the gothic to re-imagine Philippine folktales.

The said collection features five short stories namely “Lechonito the Holy Innocent,” “The Mystery Sleeper of Balite Drive,” “The Traveling Salesman and the Split Woman,” “Balikbayan,” and “Gotita de Dragon” which were previously published in Joaquinesquerie: Myth a la Mod (Cacho Hermanos, 1983).

The perfect Nick Joaquin starter for young adult readers, this book is graced with illustrations by distinguished children’s book illustrator Beth Parrocha-Doctolero (Habulan/The Chase).

Gotita de Dragon and other Stories was first launched by Anvil Publishing and the Joaquin family on April 29, 2014, Nick’s 10th death anniversary, and on May 4, 2014, on celebration of his 97th birthday.
