Description (in English): 

Blue Hyacinth is a stir fry text by Jim Andrews and Pauline Masurel. Masurel wrote the texts. Andrews did the programming and invented the stir fry form. The stir fry form consists of n texts.

Each of the four texts somehow involve the blue hyacinth. Each of the four texts is partitioned into 30 parts.

There are several more stir fry texts and essays about them at
