Mr. Dalisay sets the stage.
“…I’m also happy to say that we’ll soon be announcing the winner of this year’s Madrigal Gonzalez Award for the best first book by a Filipino author over the past two years. We alternate this between books in English and Filipino, thus the two-year span. This year it’s English’s turn, and the finalists are The El Bimbo Variations by Adam David, The Proxy Eros by Mookie Katigbak, Girl Trouble by Alan Navarra, and Antisipasyon by Victor Dennis T. Nierva…”
Again, salamat gid. 🙂
