Ben Singkol: A Novel
By F. Sionil Jose
Published by Solidaridad Publishing House, ©2001.
He is “supot.” Scared, he ran away from the ritual of manhood. He ran away again from his foxhole in Bataan when the Japanese were closing in. And through much of his life, even when he had become comfortable, he still ran away haunted by the poverty of his boyhood of the treachery that he may have committed. This is Benjamin Singkol, perhaps the most interesting character ever created by F. Sionil Jose.
