Book Description

As sharp and fast as a street boy s razor . . . a rich small feast of a book. The New York Times Book Review Welcome to Manila in the turbulent period of the Philippines late dictator. It is a world in which American pop culture and local Filipino tradition mix flamboyantly, and gossip, storytelling, and extravagant behavior thrive.

In the center of this maelstrom is Rio, a feisty schoolgirl who will grow up to live in America and look back with longing on the land of her youth. Entertaining and compelling. . . . At the end, you emerge from its intense, dreamlike world feeling as if you ve been to the Philippines. The Philadelphia Inquirer Hagedorn transcends social strata, gender, culture, and politics in this exuberant, witty, and telling portrait of Philippine society. The San Diego Union "
