By Yongsoo Park
Boy Genius is a robust id satire, the picaresque odyssey of a kid looking to avenge the wrongs perpetrated on his mom and dad. Park’s genius, born into the turmoil of post-war Korea, is used as a puppet by way of the South Korean governmentbefore being banished to the United States. From a distant big apple urban ghetto, the boy wages a clandestine guerilla struggle opposed to all symbols of authority. Park renders his imaginative and prescient of late-20th-century international tradition with the daring, surreal strokes of Pynchon and the wild political sensibilities of Godard; the painful, mostly unmapped narrative territory of Boy Genius creates a gripping, harrowing read.
Yongsoo Park is a Korean-American author and self sufficient film-maker dwelling in ny City.
