Riverrun, A Novel

Riverrun is a rite-of-passage novel on the life of Danilo Cruz, a young gay man who grows up in a colourful and chaotic military dictatorship in the Philippines. Shaped like a memoir, it glides from childhood to young adulthood in chapters written like flash fiction and vignettes, along with a recipe for shark meat, a feature article, extracts from a poem and vivid songs. It can be classified as literary fiction, that is nevertheless accessible to the general reader.
