The arrival of the Great Philippine Novel on what once was--and arguably still is, the shore of the Philippines' colonial master is not only cause for celebration but one more layer of historical irony for Apostol's exceptional and irreverent postmodern masterpiece, which buttresses what is ostensibly the diary of a Filipino revolutionary with a meta structure of academic repartee that showcases every weapon in the gifted Apostol's literary arsenal.

Told in eight single-paragraph chapters  by as many different narrators, Hurricane Season is an assault of language that leaves the reader in a state of ecstatic discombobulation, searching for an elusive truth among  the dueling narratives. On its face, this is a story about the murder of a witch and the search for her killers and their motivation, but at a deeper level Melchor has constructed a discordant and wild portrait of a small town riven by poverty, politics, and sex.

Novelist and combat veteran Elliot Ackerman joins forces with retired Adm. Jim Stavridis to produce a compelling, provocative thriller about how the next world war might unfold. The novel blends fast-paced, taught writing, suspenseful action, and intriguing characters with a seasoned understanding of geopolitical strategy and an all-too-real appreciation for how events can spin out of control through miscalculations and blind spots. Definitely a cautionary tale worth reading—and pondering.
