Gina Apostol

Publishers Weekly chose Gina Apostol's fourth novel Insurrecto as one of the Ten Best Books of 2018. Insurrecto was also a NYT Editors' Choice and shortlisted for the Dayton Prize. Her third book, Gun Dealers' Daughter, won the 2013 PEN/Open Book Award and was shortlisted for the William Saroyan International Prize. Her first two novels, Bibliolepsy and The Revolution According to Raymundo Mata, both won the Juan Laya Prize for the Novel (Philippine National Book Award) and are now available in US editions. Her forthcoming 2023 book, La Tercera, like Insurrecto, uses her research on the Filipino-American War to cast a lens on our contemporary times. She was a fellow at Civitella Ranieri in Umbria, Italy, and Emily Harvey Foundation, among other fellowships. Her essays and stories have appeared in The New York Times, Los Angeles Review of Books, Foreign Policy, Gettysburg Review, Massachusetts Review, and others. She lives in New York City and western Massachusetts and grew up in Tacloban, Philippines. She teaches at the Fieldston School in New York City. website: ginaapostol.com
