Companionable Voices : Poetry from a Lost Generation

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The public is cordially invited to the launch of the book "Companionable Voices" highlighting five Filipino poets with their Poetry from a Lost Generation at 6 PM, Thursday, October 24, 2013 33rd Floor Lounge, Malayan Plaza Hotel ADB Ave. cor. Opal Rd., Ortigas Center, Pasig City.

The book features the works of Juan Jose Jolico Cuadra, Cesar Ruiz Aquino, Recah A. Trinidad, Erwin E. Castillo, and Wilfredo Pascua Sanchez. This folio of seventy five poems, in taste ranging from classic to contemporary, commemorates a longtime friendship begun in the 1960s among five largely neglected Filipino poets. It is a friendship that grew through the years into an imperfect commonality of means and minds, ultimately because — in their words — they all ate of the same fruit and drank from the same poisoned wells.

Cesar Ruiz Aquino, Recah A. Trinidad, Erwin E. Castillo, and Wilfredo Pascua Sanchez join with their recently departed friend Juan Jose Jobico Cuadra — to whom this volume is dedicated— in this dazzling, deeply moving hail and farewell.
