Nelson's Run

Peter Bacho, Author, Peter Baho, Author Willowgate Press $12.95 (145p) ISBN 978-1-930008-02-1
The eponymous young antihero of Nelson's Run heads for the Philippines as a ""sexual tourist"" after his father is accidentally killed by the mistress the two men shared. There he slings propaganda for a crooked regime, then gets stuck in a guerrilla war and a weird sexual triangle with politically radical Marta and the wealthy, well-connected Anita. Though author Peter Bacho (Cebu, winner of an American Book Award) uses political and sexual satire to create some memorable scenes offering wild sendups of gender roles, colonialism and corruption along the way this slim novel feels rushed and never has an opportunity to come together as a whole.
