There is no specific biography written about Francisco Icasiano, nor did he write much about himself in an autobiographical way. I cannot, therefore, point you towards a particular book or biography to read that will give a great deal of information on the life of Francisco Icasiano. As this is the case, there is little that we know about Francisco Icasiano and his life in general, although there is some information about his career.

  • The life of Francisco Icasiano
Francisco Icasiano was a Filipino author who also went by the more extended name of Francisco "Mang Kiko" Bayan Icasiano. Amongst his first literary works were a series of essays written in the Sunday Tribune Magazine. The essays, written in English, were entitled 'From my Nipa Hut' and were satirical or comedic in style and tried to reflect the culture of the common Tao people in the Philippines. The essays seemed to look at the culture in the Philippines and, whilst comedic in style, presented opinion on what life was like in the Philippines. These essays have subsequently been collated into a book entitled 'Horizons from my Nipa Hut'. The book's most famous essay is called 'The World in a Train' and can be read on many websites including the following link http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=114315955252379&topic=229 which can read whether you have a Facebook account or not. Icasiano's literary works did not stop with the essays as he also wrote a series of short stories, including the title Sonia.

  • What else do we know about Icasiano's life?
Other information surrounding the Filipino author is scarce but we do know the names of his parents, Francisca Bayan and Bonifacio Ycasiano and we know that he was one of seven siblings born into the family.
