Summary of Disorientation

Disorientation is a multivalent joy, a genuinely creative debut novel that reinvents the college novel satire as an Asian American literature studies whodunit, in which the murder victim may be your concept of yourself?however, you identify.

I frequently held my breath till I burst out laughing, and I wouldn’t dare to compare it or Chou to anyone currently writing. Chou’s razor wit is sure-eyed and wickedly funny, fixated on what feels like decolonization of her protagonist, if not the reader, that just might set her free.

Ingrid Yang, a 29-year-old Ph.D. student, is desperate to finish her research on Xiao-Wen Chou, a late canonical poet, and never reread about “Chinese” stuff. However, after years of arduous research, all she has to show for it is a junk food addiction and stomach ache. When she comes upon a strange message in the Chou archives by mistake one afternoon, she tells herself that it is her ticket out of academic misery.

Conclusion: Disorientation A Novel Review

A March 2022 Amazon Best Book: Chou’s raucous disaster of a college whodunit packs a punch, brimming with sarcasm and the hilarious consequences of deadline-dodging. It’s a sarcastic and cynical novel with unexpected twists and turns that uncovers a world of academia and racism that’s a lot more stinging than it appears at first.

Ingrid Yang is a Ph.D. student who procrastinates so much on her dissertation that she believes the dead Chinese poet she’s writing about is alive and well, and someone else entirely.
