The Unintended is a mystery, wrapped in a film with two dueling scripts. Plus Elvis.
A PALE FIRE FOR OUR COMPLEX TIMES
If Pale Fire were crossed with Cortazar's Hopscotch and set in the Third World, that book would be The Unintended.
This site mainly contains THE END NOTES to The Unintended. Also jokes, sad photographs, historical allusions, and many things you can use for your homework.

The writer zeroes in on the Western cowboy emblems in the Warhol piece. Elvis and the tropes of violence, guns, masculinity—tropes also of the American spectacle that is the Philippine-American war.
