Finalist for the National Book Award: An intense portrait of the Philippines in the late 1950s.
Dogeaters follows a diverse set of characters through Manila, each exemplifying the country's sharp distinctions between social classes. Celebrated novelist and playwright Jessica Hagedorn effortlessly shifts from the capital's elite to the poorest of the poor. From the country's president and first lady to an idealist reformer, from actors and radio DJs to prostitutes, seemingly unrelated lives become intertwined.

Struggled to get through this audio book the voice work was flat which made it difficult to understand who was talking in the story.
The story itself was interesting but had a format similar to movies like love actually, with a large cast that is loosely connected.
