Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog

Binubuksan ng nobelang ito ang panibagong yugto sa pagsusulat ng nobela Malayo na ito sa tradisyon ng mga romantisista at modernista na laging mabigat sa dibd Eight Muses of the Fall the English translation of Walong Diwata ng Pagkahulog was longlisted in the 2009 Man Asian Literary Prize This award is the Asian euivalent of Man Booker or PulitzerThis book has just made me interested on the books that figured won or shortlisted for that award This book was only longlisted yet it was already so brilliantly written I thought it should have won if not at least shortlisted I used to ignore this award because I already have 2400 physical books in my to read pile here at home and collecting books that won or got nominated for that new award would obviously add books and it will take me my whole life to finish all these However I am an Asian so it is expected that I should read about our very own stories and also patronize our fellow Asian writersIt tells the story of DanielAyelKarl Kabute an aspiring Filipino writer and his three friends Erik Glen and Michael Their friendship starts when they are young boys in San Pablo City then they part ways when they leave the town to study college or find jobs in other places Daniel leaves San Pablo and settles in Marikina City The story starts with Daniel writing an email to Michael recounting their experiences in a fictional place called Atisan located somewhere in San Pablo LagunaThe writing particularly because of its rhythm short fluid verses and the supernatural elements was very similar to that of Haruki Murakami Samar through Daniel acknowledged this by saying that he already finished reading all of Murakami s novels and short story collections This was in that part when Daniel was uestioning why most people closed to him left without saying a word as if almost mysteriously There was also the reference to the darkness inside the well that was inspired by Murakami s The Wind Up Bird Chronicle However in my opinion Samar was not a Murakami s poor copycat Samar built on Murakami s style by incorporating heartfelt familiar situations unreliable narrator and effectively using shifting narratives These fragmented narrations that shifted almost every other pages made me slowed down so it took me 9 days to finish this book But no regrets Samar s style was the reason why I finished the book I wanted to find out what happened to the characters The fragments were like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle You would only appreciate the whole picture once you fit in the last piece The title was derived from the belief that cats have nine lives Their ninth death however is their final one For the first eight the belief according to Samar is that there are 8 muses or diwatas who catch the soul of the cat from falling to the ravine This falling image was similar to Holden Caulfeld s vision of catching babies through in the rye I don t want to spoil your fun but my interpretation of the ending was that Daniel died as he saw his mother holding the shoulder of the monster child or tiyanak in the final scene Well I just wanted to illustrate to you in case you are planning to read this book that Samar did not use straight storytelling and you have to interpret some parts of it in your desire to put that last piece of the jigsaw puzzleTo summarize this is an exceptional Tagalog book Well written in unconventional way Samar just firmed up my belief that there are Tagalog books that are not written only to please romance or shallow readers This may not really be an original work of art but at least Samar has that humility to admit his influences like Murakami or Salinger He even did that using his character who even cited the titles of those works in the book itselfBravo Prof Egay Samar You made me proud of being a Tagalog novel reader I hope of our Filipino readers will give your book a try It s so sad to see that most of them patronize English books and give flimsy reason that Tagalog novels are not at par with what they are readingI wish they knew better
