My Little China Girl: A Blottoblogography is a work of fiction penned largely in a stream of consciousness style by author Gordon MacRae. Recommended for adults due to some explicit language, sexual content and mentions of alcoholism, this is a dark exploration of a man whose pursuit of happiness leads him from one disaster to another as the plot unfolds, though he is always on the search for one woman who could become his ultimate life partner. Jaded by his friend’s success, protagonist Thomas eventually ventures to China with the hope of meeting someone who can help him quell his affections into something more normative.

Author Gordon MacRae has created a thoroughly modern stream of consciousness style novel which reads like a contemporary to the likes of James Joyce and contains much outlandish, alternative and dark behavior as the characters explore the grim realities of life, love and the idea of companionship for life. The writing style and content of the novel itself will not suit every reader, especially as Thomas and Grant are both quite unlikeable in their approach to women particularly, but the writing certainly illuminates the psyche and the alcohol-fuelled ways of thinking which drive these types of characters towards the plot’s tragic twists and turns. Whatever your opinion of Thomas, MacRae presents a raw and accomplished portrayal of character depth that affects readers emotionally, making My Little China Girl an intense and truly unique reading experience for those seeking something really different.
