More About From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant by Alex Gilvarry; Gil Johannessen
 
 
 
Overview
The critically acclaimed debut from Alex Gilvarry, a darkly comic love letter to New York, told through the eyes of Boy Hernandez: Filipino immigrant, glamour junkie, Guantanamo detainee.
Alex Gilvarry's ambitious second novel, Eastman Was Here, will be on sale in August 2017.

Alex Gilvarry's widely acclaimed first novel is the story of designer Boy Hernandez: Filipino immigrant, New York glamour junkie, Guantanamo detainee. Locked away indefinitely and accused of being linked to a terrorist plot, Boy prepares for the tribunal of his life with this intimate confession, a dazzling swirl of soirees, runways, and hipster romance that charts one small man's undying love for New York City and his pursuit of the big American dream--even as the present nightmare of detainment chisels away at his vital wit and chutzpah.
A New York Times Editor's Choice, From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant unveils two of America's most illusory realms--high fashion and Homeland Security--in a funny, wise, and beguiling, and Kafkaesque tale for our strange times.
