shuffle is a multi-genre novel that troubles the boundaries between fact and fiction, past and present, and traditional heteronormative gender roles. The novel tracks the growth of Alexandra from an observer to an active participant in the construction of her identity. By considering the many contributing factors to identity building, such as past experience, physical embodiment, and social expectation, shuffle highlights the importance of relationships and the fluidity of memory. shuffle also considers the relationship between human subjects and technology, demonstrating how technology participates in the interactive process of identity building.
