Tropical Gothic is an intense collection of stories that includes the "Summer Solstice", which inspired the local film Tatarin; Candido's Apocalypse, "a twisted coming-of-age story on finding identity in the grossly obvious; "Doña Jeronima", the legend of the nymph and her lover in a cave by the river Pasig, and many more haunting tales in the writer's distinguished style. This book is highly recommended to fourth year high school or first year college students. NICK JOAQUIN, novelist, playwright, poet, journalist, historian, and biographer, has been the recipient of almost all of the prestigious award in literature and the arts, including the National Artist Award for Literature, “the highest national recognition given to Filipino artist who have made significant contributions to the development of Philippine arts and to the cultural heritages of the country.”

Widely regarded as the greatest Filipino writer of the 20th century, he was also conferred, among other recognitions, the Republic Cultural Heritage Award for Literature in 1961, the Journalist of the Year Award in the early 1960s, the Book of the Year Award in 1979 for his Almanac for Manileños, the National Book Award for several of his works, the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Journalism, Literature, and Creative Communication Arts (the Asian counterpart of the Nobel Prize) in 1996, and the Tanglaw ng Lahi Award in 1997.
