Exuberance meets desperation. Met people so broken, you wondered, could they ever come back? Disconnected, yearning, broken yet happy? Even possible?
« A Bible in one hand, the nice old couple, voguing in highly stylized humble poses and meek faces, a knowing smile at the ready, not daring to look Jim’s way, explained to the government people that came to get him back why they no longer desired to keep the troubled child. Mrs. Rockwell seemed at a loss. There was no room at the orphanage. If one was to believe all that had been said about him, Jim was clearly deranged. For one, he was incapable of empathy. She could see his blank stares. He didn’t appreciate how he made everybody’s life a living Hell. Why couldn’t he just behave? She would have him evaluated and probably interned after the summer, once space became available. »
I really enjoyed your novel Broken/Happy. First off, this is a really brilliant concept and I haven’t read something quite like it. I really enjoyed journeying through these different cultures and exploring the social issues you addressed. I loved that I was being transported all over the world and through space. It was a very emotional read. I think this is an amazing book filled with characters that steal your heart and emotionally charged relationships and ideas that drive the story. I can’t wait to see what you do next. This is a very emotional read and your structure is fantastic. You should be very proud of this piece.
This book tells a story of exclusion, of being made the “other”, kept in the dark and figuratively covered with dung; a story of people who embody difference and are subtly kept away from opportunities when it is feared they would threaten the status quo; of aspirations frustrated, if not by legal means, then by willful neglect. Exclusion through frustration is the name of the game.
