  • I'm curious who is Nick Joaquin?
  • Nicomedes Marquez Joaquin was a Filipino writer, historian, and journalist, best known for his English-language short stories and novels. Joaquin was conferred the rank and title of National Artist of the Philippines for Literature. He has been considered one of the most important Filipino writers in english, along with Jose Rizal and Claro M. Recto
  • He was born in Paco, Manila, a child of Leocadio Hoakin, a colonel of General Emilio Aguinaldo during the 1896 Revolution, and Salome Marquez, an English and Spanish teacher.
  • As a boy, after being read poems and stories by his mother, he read many books at his father's library and the National Library of the Philippines. His father was now a successful lawyer after the revolution. His reading made him interested in writing.
  • At 17, he presented his first play in the prewar Tribune's World Literature Division, where he worked as a proofreader.
