    Salamanca Kindle ñ Paperback salamanca mobile, Salamanca PDFDean Francis Alfar's novel Salamanca 2006 is a uite short piece of magic realism that stretches across much of the life of its central protagonist and through several decades of the Philippines' history I've been slightly imprecise in that sentence because while one spends perhaps as much as the first three uarters of the book believing that even during some longish periods when he is off stage the central protagonist is the oversexed writer Gaudencio Rivera towards the end of the book in a feat of tricksterism that made at least this reader grin appreciatively one discovers this assumption was misplacedThe book is full of plots but the one that holds the others together concerns Gaudencio Rivera's discovery in Tagbaoran a remote small town in the Philippines' island province of Palawan of Jacinta a young woman of such incandescent beau

    Salamanca Kindle ñ Paperback salamanca mobile, Salamanca PDF Salamanca was awarded the Grand Prize for the Novel in the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature in 2005 and was first published by the Ateneo Press in 2006 It is for the most part a love story and its appeal is in the interrogation of who that love's between or whatGeneralLanguageLike with most of Alfar’s work language in this novel is strange almost whimsical but underscored by something heavier a certain darkness—the setting is familiar but made new and the actions of the characters are uite bizarre almost scandalous when held against its formal even “serious” counterparts It’s uite a shock to read but this shock is tempered by the lightness of space Palawan and Manila are brought to life here teeming with various characters loud and sure and doubtful and real Places are characterized either by its people or as people very much
