I liked this one. Takes place in the Philipines in the early 50's. A huge cast of characters, told from the view of Rio, a young girl growing up then. She has been brought to America and is looking back on her childhood. Assassinations, dictators, pimps, junkies, beauty queens. This book has it all.
