About this product
- DescriptionJessica Hagedorn has received wide critical acclaim for her edgy, high-energy vels chronicling the clash and embrace of American and Filipi cultures. With <i>Dream Jungle</i>, she achieves a new level of narrative daring. Set in a Philippines of desperate beauty and rank corruption, <i>Dream Jungle</i> feverishly traces the consequences of two seemingly unrelated events: the discovery of an alleged ?lost tribe? and the arrival of a celebrity-studded American film crew filming an epic Vietnam War movie. Caught in the turmoil unleashed by these two incidents are four unforgettable characters?a wealthy, icoclastic playboy, a woman ensnared in the sex industry, a Filipi-American writer, and a jaded actor?who find themselves drawn irrevocably together in this lavish, sensual portrait of a nation in crisis.
