Read & Download µ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ß Jessica Hagedorn Dogeaters Summary Ë 108 Jessica Hagedorn ß 8 Read & Download 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 extrav. My very first time to read a novel by Jessica Hagedorn born 1949 a Philippine born American novelist playwright poet and multimedia performance artist I purchased my copy of this book in 2010 but postponed reading this several times because of what a friend said that it is similar to Miguel Syjuco s Ilustrado 2 stars That this and Syjuco s are both composed of short stories or vignettes with no cohesion because of the absence of unifying theme That both are trying hard to be seen as postmodern writings only failing in the endI agree and disagreeI agree because like what I mentioned in my review of Ilustrado Dogeaters is also composed of short stories culled into a book The only difference is here one recognizable story is contained in at least one chapter so it is easy to follow the plot and it is enough for me to remember the character and the event before another story and characters are introduced However there are so many of them that it would have been better if I got myself a pen and paper and jotted down the names of the characters before moving on Also as interesting characters came in I forgot already the previous ones like Andres and Trinidad and when they returned towards the end I had to think hard on which chapter I first encountered them I was also looking for the denouement that will tie up the loose ends in the last chapters just like what F Sionil did with his Gagamba The Spider Man 2 stars but there was none Hagedorn of course this being a postmodern probably did not want this to be predictable and so she left the characters as they seem to appear like in frozen in still pictures That s what s life is anyway We when part with someone we don t necessarily have to formally say farewell Sometimes we don t have a chance Sometimes it is better to just leave without saying goodbyeThe other similarity between this and Ilustrado 2 stars is that Syjuco and Hagedorn are both Filipino Americans and they exploit the Philippines to their benefits write a novel gain popularity and undoubtedly make money by writing a book and release it in the US to be read primarily by the American I mean if you are a foreigner and if these books are the only ones you read about the Philippines you would get the idea that our country is full of crooks prostitutes corrupt politicians underground syndicates showbiz crazy dimwits and religious fanatics There are nothing positive depicted in these books about the Philippines and the Filipinos It is as if Hagedorn and Syjuco now both US based are ingrates of the land of birth and they use what little they knew or heard of the country to shock their American friendsHowever Dogeaters is a notch better than Ilustrado because it is better written as it is easier to understand and her characters are definitely memorable Hagedorn has this ability to create pictures in your mind and being a Filipino it is not difficult to do so I was born in the 60 s and Hagedorn left the Philippines a year prior to my birth year 1964 so I still had the chance to see a movie at Odeon and other first class movie houses along Taft Avenue I was already a young man when the Marcos couple was ousted from power by the People Power Revolution in 1986My first Hagedorn and I think I will rest for sometime before I pick up another book of her I heard that this book is her best so I am not expecting the others to really blow me away
