UNFICTIONS by Jason Price Everett

"Jason Price Everett's UNFICTIONS is a superb first novel. It reminded me of J.G.Ballard at his best....He has a poet's sense of language and a painter's sense of scene, offering a clear-eyed interpretation of today's realities....I can thoroughly recommend it."

-  MICHAEL MOORCOCK, author of Breakfast in the Ruins

"Unfictions is a remarkable achievement and issues a profound challenge to the literary landscape of today."

 - The Antigonish Review

A modern and radical work composed of discrete units of text designed to evoke a scale of notes of emotion from the reader, Unfictions is an extended work of lyrical necessity: both a CAT-scan of our common society in the fin-de-millenaire period and a socio-aesthetic prophecy. Poetry, prose, fiction, nonfiction, autobiography, history, theology, literary criticism, political critique, polemic, pornography Unfictions unerringly dramatizes the way that we react to the information-rich environment of today in all of its glorious simultaneity. It is the beginning of a New Realism in contemporary letters: one that faithfully reflects a culture so supersaturated with events, quotations and copies of copies that it can no longer distinguish between categories and their increasingly relative meanings.
