Ilustrado by MIGUEL SYJUCO
Reviewed by WARD SUTTON
MIGUEL SYJUCO’s intriguing novel deserves an equally entertaining review. WARD SUTTON’s illustrated review fits that requirement with style and Ward has most graciously allowed us to reprint. Thanks Ward! You can view more of Ward’s work on his web site at http://web.me.com/wardsutton/Drawn_To_Read/Home.html
In Ilustrado, a playful and ambitious work that has garnered international acclaim, author Miguel Syjuco weaves the tales of two compelling men — one a famed, personally embattled Filipino author named Crispin Salvador, and the other his young former protege, who happens to be named Miguel Syjuco. As Miguel returns to the Philippines following Salvador's death, his search for answers yields a haunting, surprising, and bitingly satirical portrait of a nation and moment in time.
