the 1st of Luis H. Francia's books of non-fiction to be released within the usa, the attention of the Fish paints a brilliant and specified portrait of the fear, attractiveness and insistent humanity of the Philippines of this day. Cross-cutting among Francia's reminiscences of the Philippines of his early life and money owed of his travels throughout the archipelago during the last twenty years, the attention of the Fish takes us the size of the country: from Batanes within the north to the Muslim Jolo and Marawi areas of the south, and from the rugged mountain hideaways of innovative freedom combatants to the well-appointed salons of the political and cultural elite. Painters and clergymen, island shamans and small-town politicians, cultists, feminists and notorious first women all make an visual appeal during this imaginitive and idiosyncratic exploration of 'home.' via their tales, and during his personal stories of estrangement and attractiveness within the Philippines and within the united states, Francia displays at the hybridity that's concurrently the weight and the benediction of the Philippines--and of his personal mestizo self.This is the booklet version of the attention of the Fish, initially released in print shape in February 2001.
