“Moon Hanging Low Over My Window and Other Poems,” a book of poetry written by Babeth Lolarga and published by UST Publishing House, will be available for pre-orders starting Aug. 1.
Readers who will pre-order via Shopee will get the title for a special price of ₱520. The pre-order link will be made available when the UST Bookstore and its online shops reopen on Aug. 1. The pre-order period ends on Aug. 15, and the books will be processed and shipped within the next few weeks.
The book is the latest from Lolarga, a poet and painter whose words are fluid and water-like, but “each poem hides a sharp bite in its unassuming quiet.”
Said Padmapani L. Perez: “Here was poetry that listened… Here was poetry that heard even your faintest, most secret whispers of a familiar despair.”
