a portrait of the artist as filipino

nick joaquin 1917-2004

i've heard about his book "the woman who had two navels" (winner of the first harry stonehill award) but i have yet to pick it up. i suppose today i will. i don't know enough about this man to write a tribute of any justice and honestly, there's plenty on the web about this award winning filipino novelist, poet, playwright and essayist whose birthday is celebrated today.
