English edition of Eros Atalia's Palanca Award winning novel, "Tatlong Gabi Tatlong Araw"
Translated to English by David T. Ong
What can happen in three nights in a small town with big ghosts?
For documentarist Raymundo "Mong" Mojica, his return to Magapok, in time for the town fiesta, was simply to fulfill his mother’s death wish: to place her picture on the altar of the chapel and to scatter her ashes on the plains of the small town. However, a super typhoon was headed straight for Sta. Barbara, the province where Mong was situated. He raced to reach the town before the typhoon does.
What should have been a simple three-day celebration of the feast of Sta. Barbara de Bendita turned sinister and ugly. Mong witnessed how the ground swallowed a whole cow. He helped the townsfolk yank a boy from a huge hand pulling it down to the grave. He captured in his video camera hundreds of lifeless Magapok citizens who did not wake up from their sleep, and how the light fizzled out from the surviving population.
Are these caused by paranormal beings?
Is this some bio-chemical warfare?
Are they being abducted by aliens?
How else can they be further from the truth?
