The novel purports to be a first-person account by Enrique, a slave on Ferdinand Magellan's ship, believed by some to have been a native of Cebu and the first Filipino to circumnavigate the globe. As such it is an important contribution to the cultural flowering stimulated by the celebrations of the centennial of the Philippine Revolution.

"In a work of fiction, telling the story is the prime consideration, not historical accuracy," author Cortes writes. Nonetheless his narrative is a carefully researched work and takes sides in certain scholarly debates which continue to divide historians today.

Carlos Cortes is best known for his award-winning short stories. He was born in Cebu City, grew up in Mandaue, and now resides in Mactan. His wife, the writer Maria Victoria Kapauan, has borne him two sons, Aethelstan Emil and Xavier Laurenco. Longitude is his first novel.
