9780142001097: Dream Jungle

Jessica Hagedorn has received enormous critical acclaim for her edgy, high-energy novels chronicling the clash and embrace of American and Filipino cultures. With "Dream Jungle," she breaks through to a new level of narrative daring and has written her most complex and accomplished novel to date. "Dream Jungle" takes off from two seemingly unrelated events-the discovery of a lost Stone Age tribe in a remote mountainous area of the Philippines and the filming of an epic Vietnam War movie in the rain forest. But the "lost tribe" just might be a clever hoax masterminded by a brooding wealthy iconoclast-and the Hollywood movie seems doomed as the cast and crew continue to self-destruct in a cloud of drugs and egos. At once a sensual and razor-sharp indictment of colonialism, "Dream Jungle" evokes the desperate beauty and rank corruption of the Philippines from the height of the Marcos era in the mid-1970s to the end of the twentieth century.

Review:

"Jessica Hagedorn is one of the best of a generation of writers who are making the American language new and who in the process are creating a new American literature." (Russell Banks)
