ReaderCon Filipino Friday Week 4: Philippine Lit
“Reading” to me means mostly novels and novellas, and these are the Filipino authors/novelists I’ve read since 2004 (when I started my book list).
Arlene J. Chai
F. Sionil Jose
Carla M. Pacis
Tara FT Sering
Maya Burgos Cruzada
Katrina Ramos Atienza
Miriam Delos Santos
Melissa dela Cruz
Vince O. Teves
Graphic novels: Budjette Tan, Carlo Vergara
Not all of them were published in the Philippines, and not all of them have written specifically about the Philippines. My goal however has been to read more novels by Filipinos, and this list will keep growing.
My rather biased recommendation though is my husband, Michael AR Co. He hasn’t (finished) a novel yet, but I’m a genuine fan of his work.
