Filipino Writer: Hermel Nuyda
People have been asking about Hermel Nuyda.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
Hermel A. Nuyda was born on October 4, 1918 in Camalig, Albay. He was well-provided financially by his father (whose humble beginnings as a road laborer and janitor probably helped him become a congressman), studied in public schools, and eventually finished law.
Even as a lawyer, Hermel Nuyda took time to write short stories which saw print in various publications. In Filipino Writers in English: A Biographical and Bibliographical Directory by Florentino B. Valeros and Estrellia Valeros-Gruenberg (New Day Publishers, Quezon City, Philippines, 1987), there was mention of a plan to publish a collection of Nuyda's stories. The tentative title was Fat of the Land, and features stories that focus on the rural working folk.
One of the more talked about stories of Nuyda is The Pulse of the Land, which was published in the 1961 edition of Philippine Prose and Poetry (volume 3).
I wonder where Atty. Hermel Nuyda is today. I wish there were more information about him and other Filipino writers.
