This thesis is a novel in short stories and follows in the tradition of the ethnic postmodern writers. In particular, this thesis is informed by the work of Latina writers Sandra Cisneros and Denise Chavez, as their techniques of fragmented story presentation and use of naïve narrator are employed. The short stories are snapshots of a young Asian American boy (modeled after the author) as he navigates growing up in a complicated world. The boy begins the novel at around eight to nine years of age and finishes the novel as a high school graduate. The stories are seemingly disjointed in terms of theme; however, a broader perspective of the collection finds consistent themes of traditions, interactions between fathers and sons, hybridity, and memory. The thesis is an experiment in applying postmodern techniques in the style of the Latino writers.
