patchwork girl

patchwork girl

we were talking last week about what sort of "story" takes well to hypertext, and i think that "patchwork girl" provides a great example of what works. i'm having a hard time putting into words what i liked so much about it. i just think that the form and the content (if we're still making these distinctions) complement each other very well. obviously, the whole story is about a girl sewn together from pieces of dead girls, just as "patchwork girl" itself borrows heavily from a pretty old book, by someone who is now dead.
