Summary
"Ghosts, doppelgängers, and a man who turns into a tree: a startling fiction debut that strives to articulate the immigrant body. In the beltline of a run-of-the-mill Canadian metropolis, an apartment complex called Cambrian Court has become the focal point of an outlandish unfurling, where even the laws of physics are becoming questioned. Embroiled within this psychic plot are three neighbours who are strangers to one another--Nohlan Buckles, Hachiko Yoshitoshi, and Zadie Chan--and whose ordinary lives have become rife with bizarre antagonists: an ogreish landlord, an ominous hooded group called the selfies, and a donkey-faced Saint Peter. The deeper they are drawn into this otherworld, the more reality becomes suspect: Nohlan is convinced he's turning into a tree, Hachiko's staging of a kabuki shockingly comes to life, and Zadie unwittingly begins to produce doppelgängers. Without even knowing each other, they come to realize just how dependent and intertwined their lives truly are. In Marc Herman Lynch's debut novel, some people explode, and others are resuscitated, but at the heart of it all are the fleeting yet indelible connections we make with one another. Darkly funny, lyrically charged, and gothically absurd, Arborescent is a raw and brilliantly imagined depiction of the unmaking of our contemporary world."--
