Summary
Rogene Gonzales’s Mula sa Dispalinghado
Moderator, Vim Nadera

Ipinakilala ni Vim Nadera si Rogene Gonzales bilang isang manunulat na naimpluwensyahan sa malaking paraan ng kanyang karanasan sa peryodismo. Makikita ang impluwensiyang ito sa manuskrito ni R Gonzales, ang “Dispalinghado,” isang koleksyon ng mga dagli.

What would I be today when I never found that old essay my parents hid inside their cabinet?  Who could I’ve been when I just stuck myself with a retake of integral calculus and inorganic chemistry? These are the questions I always ask myself.
