  • Description:

    A collection of poems, part commentary of an immigrant struggles in "blending into" the American way of life, and part recollection of the author's enduring friendship and relation with his teen-age barkada, Tropang PUTOK.
    Lagalag refers to someone seeking adventure, pleasure and conquest by travelling to and living in as many places as possible in one's lifetime.
    The poems are written in malalim na Tagalog with a sprinkling of Taglish phrases and lingos, for a more relevant retelling of an immigrant sense of adventure and youthful sense of rebellious enjoyment.
    Rolando Inton Cunanan. Son of a hamak na magsasaka't makata, who grew up to be an ad copywriter, a blackjack dealer, a construction sales agent, and later, an immigrant in the USA.
    First wrote Mga Tulang Sampay-Bakod and Mga Tulang Manibalang.
