ABOUT

"Call Jeff Wood's The Glacier what you will—a novel-in-screenplay-form; a prose poem on the themes of death, suburbia, and the cruel symmetries of cosmic time; a surreal prophecy from America's anguished heartland—it will remain what it was always aiming to be, and that's one of the most indelible and visionary movies you've ever seen."
—Jon Raymond, author of Old Joy, Wendy and Lucy, and Meek's Cutoff


Synopsis

The Glacier is a spellbinding work in the spirit of Tarkovsky or Jodorowsky that reimagines the American frontier at the turn of the millennium, a time when suburban development was metastasizing and the Social was about to implode. Following a caterer at a convention center, a surveyor residing in a storage unit, and the masses lining up for an Event on the horizon, The Glacier is a poetic rendering of the pre-apocalypse and a requiem for the passing of one world into another.

* In most cases, none of these writers endorse this book. Our math formulas are supposed to be amusing anecdotes, similar to shelf-talkers in bookstores that say "If you like X, you might enjoy Y," or "This Book is like Cormac McCarthy writing an episode of Saved by the Bell with a soundtrack by Philip Glass."

Reviews

“Rendered partly as prose poem—paragraphs strung down the pages like a necklace—and partly as sharply delivered play-script... this novel highlights the hollowness of rapid suburban growth at the turn of the millennium... Gorgeously and urgently written.”
Library Journal, starred review

"Jeff Wood's The Glacier is an innovatively told book, a truly cinematic novel."
—Largehearted Boy, Book Notes series

"The Glacier is altogether new and incredibly familiar at the same time. It’s the story of what was and what can be, simultaneously. It seduces you slowly, the reader hypnotized from the first page."
Heavy Feather Review

"Jeff Wood’s new book, described as “a novel in screenplay form,” looks at the current state of civilization, and its possible ending."
Vol. 1 Brooklyn

"A true art movie bound into a book, in part for its radical, even possibly unprecedented, form. The Glacier unfolds during a turn-of-the-millenium construction boom, as Midwestern forests and fields are transformed into superstores, corporate centers, and endless suburban housing developments."
