Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

“Praying is not enough­better to put it in writing!” Bong Bong Luwad is living with his Auntie Yuna in LA, far from his Philippine village, the Marcos regime, and his mother who helped him escape. Bong Bong and Auntie Yuna spend their days watching old movies on TV and writing pleading letters to the saints and to dead relatives. One night on the late­late movie, Bong Bong finds a new saint: Montgomery Clift, playing a soldier who helps a lost boy find his mother. Can Monty do the same for him? He gets out a pencil and paper and thus begins a series of extraordinary events that carry him from boyhood, to adolescence, through sexual awakening, madness, and finally back to the place where he can begin his life again. Letters to Montgomery Clift is a novel of endurance and hope. It is a tale of growing up, coming out, and going home.
