INSURRECTO by Gina Apostol
Gina Apostol’s new book, INSURRECTO, was chosen as the cover of Publishers Weekly. In the boxed and starred review, they said of the book, “This is a complex and aptly vertiginous novel that deconstructs how humans tell stories and decide which versions of events are remembered… Apostol’s layers of narrative, pop culture references, and blurring of history and fiction make for a profound and unforgettable journey into the past and present of the Philippines.”

Booklist also gave INSURRECTO a starred review, calling it a “multilayered challenge, enhanced by the presences of Elvis, Muhammad Ali, various Coppolas, and a sprawling cast of characters both historical and imagined, proves exceptionally rewarding.” Soho Press will publish the book on November 13, 2018.
