All Broken Up and Dancing is a novel written by the Singaporean author and musician Kelvin Tan. It deals with the main protagonist Brinsley Bivouac's search for identity and self-worth. Tan published the novel when he was 26 years old. The first edition was published by Thesaurus Media Publications in 1992, and the second edition, with an added book jacket, was marketed by Simpleman Books in 1998. Since its publication, the novel has gained a cult following in Singapore. Tan's follow-up, The Nethe(r);R which was printed in 2001, continues the theme of self-alienation in the city-state.
