Tabios, Eileen and Hagedorn, Jessica

This book reintroduces the work of the celebrated writer, Jose Garcia Villa, to the United States. At the height of his career, Villa’s writings earned him prizes, fellowships, and lavish praise from some of the greatest literary luminaries of the day. Yet his work has been out of the public eye for more than thirty years and out of print form more than fifteen. Although named to a National Artist in the Philippines where he was born, Villa remains largely unknown in the United States today. This publication recovers and rediscovers the work of this fierce iconoclast for a new generation.

Jose Garcia Villa was born in Manila in 1908 and emigrated to the United States in 1930. His swards and honors include a Shelley Memorial Award, American Academy of Arts and Letters Award and fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations. Villa died in 1997 in New York City.

Gamalinda, Diana T. and Gamalinda, Eric
Quezon City: Giraffe Books, 1998. 51 pp. Softcover

“Reading Diana’s poems was like regressing to a period in my life that was filled with difficulty and also joy. Many of us, especially when we were young, are afflicted with a screen of negativity that prevents us from seeing the joyful moments of our lives. I shared a home with this perplexing and wonderful poet for nineteen years, who briefly stayed with our family as though she was merely passing through. Such an honor is rarely experienced.” -- Eric Gamalinda.

Diana Gamalinda received the Focus Magazine award for poetry at the age of 17, and her poems were published in many prestigious magazines including the Manila Review. After her death in 1979, her family had planned to publish her poems, and finally her brother, Eric Gamalinda “summoned the courage to sift through her papers” in 1997.
