The author of Dogeaters presents her long-awaited second novel which continues her illumination of that intersetion where American pop culture and Filipino tradition commingle. The story of Rocky Rivera, who plays in a dissolute rock band with her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Elvis Change, The Gangster of Love blends Hagedorn's delightful humor with her own mix of poetry, prose, and song.
