Abstract: You are Eating an Orange. You are Naked is a ‘novel’ centered on a relationship between a young couple. The entire book is narrated by the male character and most of it is addressed to the female character. Instead of having one continuous narrative, Orange is written in episodes. Each episode has its own title and can be read as a self-contained piece. The book is also experimental in regard to genre; i.e., it plays with the notion that a novel might be an essay or a play, and vice-versa. This hybrid approach allows me to find a form that best fits the episode’s content. Each episode is set in a different place. My characters live in Toronto and travel to Macau, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Nagoya, Tokyo, and Prague. Nothing crazy or overly dramatic ever happens. Everything in the book is just everyday life in words.
