Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2013 Eric Hoffer E-book Fiction Award, The War Is Language is a destruction of narrative, an experimental collection of flash fiction.

These often humorous pieces exist at story's amorphous limit of spoken word and deconstruction. This disordered collection makes a mosaic with cathartic, inflammatory language.

    "Funny and intelligent shorts and scenes"
    If you could sum up The War Is Language: 101 Short Works in three words, what would they be?

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Dairy Queen scene was among my favorites, and not just because I share a love of the Reese's Pieces Blizzard with the author.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though this is a collection of short works, I loved the continuity created by the inner-woven "letters to a fake advice columnist. They give the collection a brilliant sense of connectivity. While not all the language and content would be appropriate for everyone, I found the wit charming and the experiences rang true with many of my own. Ms. Jones is an astute observer whose narrative is quite entertaining. Ryan McDaniel really brings the characters to life with his reading. The sound quality is excellent.
