How to Tame Your Tikbalang Without Even Trying | Alma Anonas-Carpio | Mitolohiya | SPG
I am no stranger to the erotic and risqué, even the pornographic in literature. The more it defies the norm and offends our sensibilities, the more I gravitate towards it. But I know of no Filipino author who can coalesce the titillating with the profound intimations of Filipino lore with such sophistication of technique and language. With this novel, Alma Anonas-Carpio has created a new and welcome genre.
