Look Who s Morphing is the debut collection by Melbourne writer Tom Cho In it Cho employs humour and a bevy of pop culture references to deconstruct the concept of identityHis prose style is simple unadorned and has an almost childlike uality to it In many of the stories Cho analyses just how saturated with popular culture our Western lives have become At various points the identities of the protagonists become almost interchangeable with those of iconic pop culture characters The Fonz Godzilla The Muppets etc Tom Cho and his family regularly appear in the stories though the surreal turns the narrative takes suggest this is anything but non fiction I suppose you could classify it as metafictionI preferred the first half of this with major props going to Dirty Dancing and The Exorcist This is perplexing because the latter half is probably stronger the standouts being Pinocchio and Cock Rock I inclined towards stories where I was familiar with the source material Which brings me to an interesting point intertextuality demands the reader be familiar with whatever s being referenced familiarity is a necessary factor if the reader wants to be in on the joke Fortunately the movies and television shows Cho references are staples of pop culture and are therefore highly accessible There is however a noticeable emphasis on eighties franchises so be preparedThough he s adept at the short form I would say Cho s writing is at its strongest when he gives himself room to explore his themes It s no surprise then that the longest stories were the most interesting while the shorter ones the two three page Dinner with series tended to be a little disposableMy main issue with this collection was that I grew fatigued with Cho s devices Lumped together these strange stories are cohesive but repetitive While reading I kept hoping the next story would be the one to come along and dazzle me with some emotional depth Instead the stories remained sparsely written theme driven as opposed to character driven and almost flippant in tone Although Cho s voice is uniue and interesting predictability really let his narratives down By this I mean that by the time I had reached the latter stories the formula had become apparent which was a problem because absurdity really only impacts when it s unexpected Maybe this is a personal reading prejudice I suppose I m predisposed to like collections with variety collections that touch on different styles and genres Lighter stories are a nice break when sandwiched between substantial offers Include too many light pieces though and the whole thing feels frivolous To me Look Who s Morphing straddles this line of frivolityHaving said all this the humour was really second to none and if I m using my level of enjoyment as a gauge then I would say this was a worthy investment of my time Cho is a writer to watch and I m interested to see what he comes up with in the future
