DAF is happy to be hosting a giveaway of Chopsticks a novel by Jessica Anthony and Rodrigo Corral. Chopsticks was born out of the desire to tell a story with multiple medias, without losing the fundamental truths which make reading fiction an emotional human experience. Chopsticks is a novel, an app, a website. It is a collage of original drawings, objects, text, sounds, and video. It is a love story. It is a mystery. Read it. View it. Experience it. The novel’s digital format will still allow you to encounter the lives of Frank and Glory, the characters that fill the pages, but the additional videos, songs and digital links will create a new novel experience.
