It is the story of a triangle in a fractal world.

Thanks!

Well, I guess it wouldn't be Flatland.

Flatland is a fascinating book, which was published back when fractals were called "monster curves". The protagonist is a stodgy middle aged square, who lives in a two dimensional universe. The trouble starts when he meets a sphere.

I remember it fondly.
