It is a shame this writer isn't better known in the US. His insight into Chinese culture is profound; his grasp of history (see his An Insular Possession) is superb. This isn't his best novel, but it is still well worth the effort. Be warned: he doesn't shy away from, um, earthy subject matter.

Enticing but its really hard to read. His characters are interesting. Some of their background comes out of nowhere unlike other writers of philippine fiction. I could tell the author is really intelligent and he switches voices from character to character convincingly. But in perhaps an amateur sort of way, he uses so much side clauses, side info, and sentences on the side that its really hard to follow his writing. Its like reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac - rambling on with run-on sentences. Like my writing here. haha. I had to put it down after the first seven chapters - and since the story hasn't even developed by then.
