The Hundred-Year Flood by Matthew Salesses 228 pages

This debut novel is the story of Tee, a Korean orphan who was adopted in infancy by a Caucasian American couple.  When Tee is in his early 20’s, he travels to Prague where he befriends Pavel, a semi-famous artist, his wife, Katka, and their friend Rockefeller.  The crux of the novel is the twists and turns these relationships take.  I found the first third of The Hundred-Year Flood confusing.  It would go back and forth in time and place with very little or no warning.  However, the more I read the more I was able to adapt to Salesses’ writing style.
