"Jackson’s prose captures a dreamlike tone that gives the reader the experience of walking into an abandoned house of mirrors where every pane of glass is as clouded over and obscuring and oddly beautiful as the next."

KCRW Bookworm Podcast interview with Jeff Jackson | 5/8/2014
Michael Silverblatt talks with Jeff Jackson: For Jeff Jackson, starting a novel is an invocation but you don't know what will be invoked. There's an idea that telling our stories is cathartic, but sometimes what you've really done is turn up the volume. His first novel, Mira Corpora, is a dark meditation on childhood: events are heightened into a new (slightly creepy) key signature. A young author's influences are often palpable: here, an influence is Dennis Cooper. A true disciple, Jackson says, doesn't look anything like the master.
