"In this study, Parker posits significant parallels between chaos theory and certain literary narratives that are seemingly chaotic or do not follow accepted structural conventions and whose structure mimics that of chaotic systems. She demonstrates this very effectively with a twofold strategy, first a succinct discussion of scientific concepts, followed by a presentation of four literary examples that support her analysis of narrative structure and meaning by exposing in each of the novels an embedded unique aspect of contemporary chaos science. A solid and well-researched interdisciplinary approach." - Maria L. Assad, Professor Emeritus of French Literature and Language, State University College at Buffalo
