Product description


'A feast of literary exploration which transcends the boundaries of the typical novel. Stylish, engaging and frequently funny, this is a masterful debut' --Sunday Business Post

'Chapters channel-hop between timeframes and entertaining chartacters until Syjuco's surprising portrait of the Philippines emerges.' --Stylist

'Exuberant and ingenious . . . With a brio that's at once comically high-literary and jangling with American street talk, Syjuco cleverly captures how characters moving between two cultures invent fictional identities for themselves.' --Sunday Times

'For many readers here, the Philippine archipelago and its pulsing cultural energies remain a blank space on the map. No longer, after this swarmingly ambitious debut novel that buzzes, honks and sings with all the gaudy brio of a traffic-clogged street market in Manila.' --Independent

'It is a compelling performance and with its juxtaposition of sources and vertiginous shifts in perspective, one feels Ilustrado is attuned to the internet age; the kind of book Jorge Luis Borges might have written if he's lived long enough to Google himself.' --Independent on Sunday

Book Description

Winner of the Man Asian Literary Prize, Ilustrado is a critically acclaimed International Bestseller
