intricate picture of the mostly seedy underbelly of Manila but it felt a bit crowded For example there is a kind of gasp moment near the end that I just shrugged at because I couldn t remember why

of what occurred Thankfully Hagedorn does spend a little time with Rio and Joey probably the two saner characters in the book Still I have to think Hagedorn is trying to say something when 90% of the supporting cast consists of druggies thugs colonial elitists corrupt politicians loveless neglectful family members and shallow vapid women The book reads like interweaving vignettes than a novel and
