Insurrecto -- Gina Apostol

Staff Pick

A novel equal in its ambition and brilliance, Insurrecto chronicles the journey of two women, an American filmmaker and her Filipino translator, as they attempt to tell two competing narratives of a single event: The Balangiga Massacre of 1901 when, during the American occupation of the Philippines, the American military murdered thousands of Filipino men, women, and children. A landmark novel in Filipino-American fiction, it grapples with the uneven relationship between the United States and the Philippines, a relationship that resulted in the total enrichment of the former and the absolute subjugation of the latter.
