About This Item

First Edition/First Printing. 325 pages. The author's third novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jessica Hagedorn's "Dream Jungle". Her much-awaited third novel. "As beautiful as summer, as unforgettable as heartbreak, and Zamora de Legazpi is one of the most troubled and fascinating protagonists in recent memory. Another luminous performance by a writer who soars from strength to strength" (Junot Diaz). In a celebrated New Yorker Magazine review, Jessica Hagedorn was praised by the late John Updike, the most influential reviewer/critic in America of his time, as one of the most brilliant writers of her generation. Harold Bloom, the greatest literary critic of our time, weighed in and wrote that "Hagedorn expresses the conflicts experienced by Asian immigrants caught between cultures. She takes aim at racism in the United States and develops in her dramas the themes of displacement and the search for belonging". An absolute "must-have" title for Jessica Hagedorn collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in glossy pink pen-marker on the title page by Jessica Hagedorn. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The signature glows beautifully against the light. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, are subsequent printings, or are remainder-marked. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. </B></I> Finalist for the National Book Award in 1990 for "Dogeaters". Voted the "Best Book of The Year" by the Before Columbus Foundation. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JESSICA HAGEDORN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0670884588.

Synopsis

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.
