Tunay Na Lalake blogger and Palanca award winner Norman Wilwayco have published several books like Mondomanila, Gerilya and Responde, to name a few, under his arsenal of wasak works. [firstpara]
And during our latest chat with this TNL, we asked him to give us his personal list of books that he can commend for us to read, in which he did so. He threw in a couple if Irvine Welsch, a Mario Puzo classic, and even the nostalgic Aliwan Komiks fortunately didn't escape his radar. "Dahil wala kaming TV, maaga ako nagbasa: komiks, pocketbooks, detective stories, crime... pagdating high school, graduate na ako sa bestsellers." Norman adds as he was reminiscing the books he grew up reading with.
Hit the gallery below and find out the books that made Norman's list and why you should be reading them!
