Editorial Reviews

Review


"Thirlwell weaves a spinning cultural commentary of interconnectedness, while Kerr renders increasingly erratic passages with acrobatic typography. The result is a structured chaos of stories within stories, impossible to put down."—Alexis Moshakis, The New York Times

"An intoxicating and dead-smart spin."—Dazed and Confused

"At the start, Kapow! looks and reads like a typical novel. It follows an overweight, neurotic British narrator reading about the Arab Spring in London, 'trying to make sense of this history in real time,' piecing together information from a cab driver friend, the news, and his imagination. But keep reading, and you’ll find the main narrative leaps around—quite literally—as other story lines crash loudly onto the page. Oddly formatted pieces of text appear in the body, following characters in Egypt. Some paragraphs flip upside down, while others melt into shapes that cut straight through the main structure. Fold-out accordion pages let text fall across 12 inches of paper....It’s a clever way of reframing the fractious contemporary news cycle....Though the book draws on a rich history of visual writing....it may be the first novel to mimic how we read in the digital age."—FastCompany

"Could this be the craziest novel you’ll ever read in print?"—Mashable

"A playful novel of typographic tricks."—The Independent

"Take that linear narratives!"—Creative Review
