Foreign Bodies (Paperback)
|Author: Candy Neubert|
After leaving the UK, Emma goes to the Philippines and thinks she has fallen in love with a place and a man of her dreams, whom she pursues with a colonial zeal. But for all her poetic sensibilities, Emma seems unaware of the destruction she is capable of raking on the people and culture around her. Taking a clear-sighted look at the similarities and differences of this Far East country and its Western visitors, this novel explores the spaces between people and the nature of encounters in romantic idylls with echoes of Western foreign policy.
