    People on Guerrero Street

    Leoncio P. Deriada

    Co-Winner, National Book Award, Fiction in a Foreign Language, 2004
    People on Guerrero Street is a novel set in Guerrero Street of Davao City, during the school year 1953?1954. The author was himself a junior in the Davao City High School at that time. The book was cited by the Manila Critics Circle “for portraying life in a ‘small town’ transforming quietly into a big city, with every growing-up event magnified beyond reason and passion, where sex is mistaken for love and love for life, until death brings both protagonist and reader back to semi-urban life in an unreal city with real people in it.”
    Iloilo City: Seguiban Printers and Publishing House, 2004
