Nuncio launches debut novel

pr_rhod nuncioThe De La Salle University’s Bienvenido N. Santos Creative Writing Center will launch Rhoderick V. Nuncio’s debut novel, “Ang Lihim ng Ultramar” (UST Publishing House, 2013) on Feb. 21, 2013, 1 pm at the Henry Sy, Sr. Hall-European Documentation Centre, DLSU-Manila.

In this novel, Nuncio, a professor of Languages and Philippine Studies at DLSU, and currently the director of Research & Advanced Studies at the DLSU College of Liberal Arts, ventures into the realm of espionage and secret presidential assassination plots. This work was praised by its preliminary readers, including eminent literary critic and professor emeritus Isagani R. Cruz, as a much-anticipated example of “a new voice” in Filipino novel writing that is suspenseful and action-packed, which successfully unites fiction and reality while maintaining its relevance to local culture and politics.

“Ultramar” will be launched along with three of Nuncio’s other publications, “100 Aklat sa Aking Pagkamulat: Pagbasa, Dagling-Suri, at Paanyaya,” “100 Bago sa DLSU,” at “Sanghiyang sa Mundo ng Internet.”
