The Mystery of the Frozen Brains(2004)
(The first book in the Marty Chan Mystery series)
A novel by Marty Chan
The Mystery of the Frozen Brains is adapted from Marty Chan's successful radio series The Dim Sum Diaries. Set in a French Canadian town in rural Alberta, the novel develops the coming to awareness of a Chinese boy in a community under the myriad of ethnic influences including French, English and Ukrainian. As serious as the novel's thematic dispatch is, Chan's buoyant, gifted humour overrides the tone.
