About This Item

New York. 2003. October 2003. Viking Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 0670884588. 329 pages. hardcover. Jacket art - Visayan Woman, 1903/Jonathan Best. Jacket design by Michelle Ishay. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Two seemingly unrelated events occur in the Philippines-the discovery of the Taobo, an ancient lost tribe living in a remote mountainous area, and the arrival of an American, celebrity-studded film crew, there to make an epic Vietnam War movie. 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 their own egos. As the consequences of these events play out, four unforgettable characters find themselves drawn together, sometimes passionately, sometimes violently. The iconoclast playboy, Zamora de Legazpi, renowned for being the first outsider to make contact with the Taobo tribe, cannot escape the boredom and frustration of his corrupt class. Rizalina, Zamora's resourceful and intelligent young servant, flees Zamora's estate, only to get trapped in the seedy underworld of sex tourism. The American actor Vincent Moody, whose personal demons cause him to feel detached from the other actors and the film crew, becomes entangled and then obsessed with Rizalina. Paz Marlowe, a writer, returns to the Philippines from Los Angeles when her mother dies, and stays to witness the fate of Zamora, the movie, and the country. inventory #33985 ISBN: 0670884588.


Jessica Hagedorn has received wide critical acclaim for her edgy, high-energy novels chronicling the clash and embrace of American and Filipino cultures. With Dream Jungle , she achieves a new level of narrative daring. Set in a Philippines of desperate beauty and rank corruption, Dream Jungle feverishly traces the consequences of two seemingly unrelated events: the discovery of an alleged ?lost tribe? and the arrival of a celebrity-studded American film crew filming an epic Vietnam War movie. Caught in the turmoil unleashed by these two incidents are four unforgettable characters?a wealthy, iconoclastic playboy, a woman ensnared in the sex industry, a Filipino-American writer, and a jaded actor?who find themselves drawn irrevocably together in this lavish, sensual portrait of a nation in crisis.
