gotita de dragon

In this collection of five short stories for both young and old, National Artist Nick Joaquin uses his whimsy and his sense of the gothic to re-imagine Philippine folktales.

“(T)he stories in this collection . . . are an exhilarating mixture of mythical fantasy and folklore and fairy tale, superstition and legend, science fiction, mystery, and divine intervention. They are told with the same combination of depth and amusement that appears in all of Nick Joaquin’s prose…. [They] are [his] lasting gifts . . . for us to enjoy no matter how old we are.” – from the Introduction by Cyan Abad-Jugo, educator and author of Salingkit

This anthology includes “Lechonito the Holy Innocent,” “The Mystery Sleeper of Balite Drive,” “The Traveling Salesman and the Split Woman,” “Balikbayan,” and ”Gotita de Dragon.”
