A trailer for MIRA CORPORA, the first novel by Jeff Jackson.
It's a coming-of-age story for people who hate coming-of-age stories. The novel features a colony of feral children, teenage oracles, mysterious cassette tapes, and a reclusive underground rock star. It weaves a moving tale of mad hope across a startling, dreamlike landscape.
“MIRA CORPORA is fine work in its manic pacing and its summoning of certain cultural emblems. Present tense with a vengeance. I hope the book finds the serious readers who are out there waiting for this kind of fiction to hit them in the face.”
– DON DELILLO
“Jeff Jackson is one of the most extraordinarily gifted young writers I've read in a very long time. His strangely serene yet gripping, unsettling, and beautifully rendered novel MIRA CORPORA has within it all the earmarks of an important new literary voice."
– DENNIS COOPER
