Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
2000 Deciduous Trees, second of the On Impulse ebook series by Nath Jones, will soon be available for $4.99 from Kindle, Scribd, Smashwords, and the Google eBookstore. ISBN: 978-1-937316-01-3. An accompanying audiobook will be available later in the year.
Audience: ‘90s zine followers, apathetic daughters of aggressive feminists, anyone interested in reliving their grungy youth, existentialist Big Ten fans.
About the Book: 2000 Deciduous Trees is an exploration of individual experience selected from Nath Jones’s ‘90s zine, The Skirt. The writing resists losing its balance during a time when gas was cheap and no one drove slowly on the cusp of a new millennium. The voice yearns for change. But nothing can be done in a twenty-something world where one-night stands get forgotten with execution-style murders.
Like Al Burian’s recent book Burn Collector, 2000 Deciduous Trees is a rerelease of zine material. The boom of zines in the 1990s existed in the American tradition of alternative literature that spans from Thomas Paine’s Common Sense to the blogosphere.
About the On Impulse | ebook series: Four collections of short works, The War is Language: 101 Short Works, 2000 Deciduous Trees, Love & Darts, and How to Cherish the Grief Stricken, are being released over two years.
The series explores narrative from catharsis to craft. The first two books play with self-expression. The third book moves beyond non-fiction into literary short story and the final collection in the series consists exclusively of fiction. The storytelling in 2000 Deciduous Trees is less experimental than the roiling bits of chatter that fuel the flash fiction of The War is Language: 101 Short Works but the severed pieces in the series’s second ebook still leave characters alone with their choices and woolen models of moons.
About the Author: In 2011 Nath Jones will finish an MFA in creative writing at Northwestern University where she was a nominee for The Best New American Voices 2010. Her publishing credits include PANK Magazine, There Are No Rules, The Battered Suitcase and Sailing World. She lives and writes in Chicago.
