About the book

Hunger in Nayawak

This anthology of prize-winning stories by Cebuano writer Lamberto G. Ceballos publicizes the culture, history, and concerns of Cebu while entertaining general readers. There are good stories in this collection. Here you will discover the past and future and alternate realities of Cebu, the devious ploys of men and the pervasive role of community. Why would an old man be called the “ungo” of Sanpilar? What has sacrifice got to do with foiling a fellowman’s poverty? How does Cebuano scientific fiction differ from that of other cultures? Where is Nayawak? These stories will provide an answer. There are things here to entertain you, and things to think about.
