CP Goes to the Philippines: Featured author F. H. Batacan

F. H. “ICHI” BATACAN was born in Manila and graduated from the University of the Philippines with a BA in communications and an MA in art history. After ten years of working in the Philippine intelligence community, she turned to broadcast journalism. Smaller and Smaller Circles, her first novel, won the prestigious Philippine National Book Award and is widely regarded as the first Philippine crime novel. It has been recently republished in an expanded edition by Soho Press in the USA.

Noel King’s extensive 2014 interview with Batacan (and her agent, the writer Andrea Pasion-Flores) appeared in Contrappasso #8 and is online HERE.
