National Artist Nick Joaquin will always be the quintessential literary giant in the galaxy of poets, fictionists, essayists, and screenwriters in the Philippines.
As the first Editor-in-Chief of the revived Philippines Graphic, under the aegis of the late business mogul, philanthropist, and Ambassador Antonio L. Cabangon Chua, Joaquin never lost touch with the Graphic until his death on April 29, 2004 at the age of 86.
Now, for the first time, the Philippines Graphic reveals the last four years in the life of the writer. The photos may have faded and the words speak of time and place now resting in the memories of people who really knew Nick Joaquin. People like noted poet-essayist Marra PL. Lanot.
It is a warm and deeply personal essay on Nick Joaquin and makes true the observation— Memory is all that matters in the end.
