Author Merlin T. Williams hits the bookshelves with a surge of provocative true-life episodes in Capistrano I. Wittingly woven for the “Baby Boom” generation and their progeny, and those who have wistfully dreamed of personal fulfillment, this book stunningly nails a story of one man’s unshakeable willpower to succeed and a profound look at a citadel for the trading in human desires.

This book is a daring literary piece that depicts real-life situations. In this story, readers will follow a man as he makes his way to achieve his dream—no matter what the cost. For those who contemplate the shedding of the shackles of conformity, of repetitive task completion, of living to satisfy the expectations of others, Michael Campbell is a man well worth meeting. Michael defines his own, “Castle in Spain”, his statement of individual dream fulfillment and he works tirelessly to achieve it. Michael’s singular focus becomes a beacon to others. Some raft together with him to his immense benefit while others become steadfast in their attempts to sink him.

Capistrano, a club for gentlemen in the heart of Metro Manila, rises to become the premier night spot in a city famous for its ability to gratify those nocturnal, nefarious desires of those who enjoy the embrace of business success—and those, as well, in sequined splendor, whose agenda it is to satisfy those needs. Capistrano is, in microcosm, South East Asia in the late 1980s. At once a bastion of sensual overload, it houses the unholy alliance of those with means and those who trade in their desires.

Filled with a powerful fusion of family drama, commercial clashes, social representation, personal struggles, sexual tensions, intricate relationships, and so much more, Capistrano I will make the readers laugh out loud, it will make them cry, and, in the process make them think about their own present and what possibilities lie untapped within.
