Om Sugar Baby
Each year an estimated five-million Western men marry women in South East Asia. Is this all how most people think, of greed and sad lasciviousness, or is there something else going on? These were not the sort of questions Peter James or Mariana Palaganas ever wanted to know the answers to. Fate, however, had other ideas for them both. In the genre of the books: Coming up for Air, Burmese Days, Lolita and Saint Jack, Sugar Baby, by Mark Lindsay, is based on real-life stories and set in 1990s Philippines. Smoking is still allowed on aeroplanes, the Spice Girls are enjoying their hit with Wannabe and Mariana sings and dances in a tourist bar after failing to win in a TV talent show. Told mostly through the eyes of Peter this adventure-romance story takes the reader on a journey, of self-discovery, through a tsunami and shanty towns, from Manila to Boracay. Good reading for anyone visiting S.E. Asia; essential reading for those frustrated with our modern "PC" society.
