Tetched: A Novel in Fractals Reviews

    This is a completely bizarre novel told from the perspective of a loner growing up in a family that makes no sense. Thus his narrative makes no sense. I read this in a grad class on Bicultural Writing and it was assigned because the narrator's mother is Chinese and his family is American. He is stuck between cultures, between worlds, but even more than that it seems that he lives in a world where it is very hard to connect. He spends the whole book trying to forge connections with the people around him.If you are into experimental narratives, you should check this out.

    It reads more like stanzas from a poem (or rather individual poems) than a novel, Tetched is the story of a boy who grows up in an almost charmingly dysfunctional family and copes with his own dysfunctional inclinations in his relationships. It's funny, sad, pretty weird, and sometimes kind of fucked up, blurring the boundaries between poems and novels in a unique, staccato style.I recommend it to anyone who appreciates poetry and who's looking for something different.
