Wilhelmina Jenkins | 2049 comments Marlon James, author of A Brief History of Seven Killings : A Novel and The Book of Night Women, has chosen Dogeaters by Jessica Hagedorn as the monthly selection for the Wall Street Journal Book Club. Hagedoen is a multiracial woman of color born in the Philippines, which is the setting for her novel, published in 1990.

Has anyone read Dogeaters? Would you recommend it?
