Anak ng Dumalaga
Anak ng Dumalaga is a novel by Iñigo Ed. Regalado published in 1933. It is similar to Regalado's other novel Sampagitang Walang Bango; both have a married woman as protagonist who goes to extremes and breaks moral codes to the detriment of her family.
Other novels by Regalado include Ang Huling Pagluha and Madaling Araw.
Gunding is called by some as a "dumalaga" because of her easy yielding to sexual favors. Because of her notorious reputation and sexual escapades, her daughter Felicidad decides to break up with her boyfriend to enter the convent in the hope of helping Gunding. In a fit of madness, Gunding's husband sets fire to their house along with all their family’s money and jewelry, destroying the luxuries that symbolize moral corruption.
