The War is Language: 101 Short Works

Length: 266 pages2 hours


The War is Language: 101 Short Works is a disordered compilation that includes absurdest letters to a fake advice columnist.

As a whole, this high-impact panic attack of prose poetry and flash fiction probes identity in experience. The book explores memory and dichotomy by focusing on the impressions of a female soldier in 21st-century America. The book’s letters to a fake advice columnist weave in a sarcastic interaction with an absurd existential authority figure. The book calls into question our post-postmodern establishment of anti-authority conformists.

The War is Language: 101 Short Works is the first in an e-book series, On Impulse, which explores the spectrum of narrative.
