Pinoy Pod 35

The poet and his past - Part 2 of our talk with Oscar Penaranda

Oscar Penaranda tells Pinoy Pod about his personal journey from his boyhood in the Philippines to his coming of age in the United States and how his experiences shaped his writing.

Penaranda also reads from his book of poetry "Full Deck (jokers playing)." Often gently humorous and sometimes wickedly barbed, Penaranda's poems are like cards dealt from a fresh pack - and you can't tell how the hand will play out until the final turn.

"Full Deck (jokers playing)" is published by T'Boli Publishing & Distribution.

Thanks for a review and mention of Oscar Penaranda's book. I am reminded also of my uncle NICK JOAQUIN' works and his life which I am reviewing these days. For I am writing the biography about my illustrious uncle.
I wonder if you have read any of Nick's works.
Mabuhay ka pare ko.

Thanks Tony. Yes of course I have read some of Nick Joaquin's works, including his first novel, The Woman Who Had Two Navels. Your project is great. We definitely need a biography of Nick Joaquin. Best of luck!
