Condign Restitutions (Excerpt)Posted: July 14, 2014
(For the past two weeks Philippines Graphic has been running my short story ‘Condign Restitutions’ in two parts. Being my most experimental work so far I’m still surprised that Graphic decided to publish it.
One of the two narratives interwoven into the piece, the miserable life of Ildefonso, has been brewing in my mind since I was at least five, and I had attempted to write it, unsuccessfully,when I was in early Elementary.
WordPress does not enable two columns, a feature vital to the story’s structure, so I had to resort to uploading this excerpt as an image – an attempt with which Windows 8 and its uselessly complicated Fresh Paint feature has also not been very helpful.
