Unveiling two of America's most illusory realms--high fashion and Homeland Security--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 pursuit of the big American dream--even as the present nightmare of detainment chisels away at his vital wit and chutzpah. "From the Memoirs of a Non-Enemy Combatant" is funny, wise, and beguiling, a Kafkaesque tale for our strange times.
