Extend your vacation just a little bit longer — virtually — with Gina Apostol's new novel.

Insurrecto follows two women in the Philippines (ah, doesn’t that sound nice and warm, fellow northerners?).

One is an American making a film about a part of the Philippine-American War; the other, her translator.

And so naturally, each woman has a distinctly different take on events, both past and present.

Apostol explained to Weekend Edition’s Scott Simon why she’s so interested in this idea of dueling perspectives and how it comes from her own life in a recent interview.

You can listen to their discussion below or read an edited transcript on NPR’s website.
