Meet Jack

I’m an experiential reader, meaning that I expect writing to be intentional, beautiful, and true.

Truth in writing isn’t limited to nonfiction; it’s work containing components of a recognizable reality used to explain the world as understood by the author. I seek out books that teach me otherness and instruct me on empathy.

I’m reticent about books with “shticks”— titles that rely on formal or stylistic gimmicks as compensation for their emotional or intellectual hollowness. Authenticity is our antidote to falseness and irony.

My favorite sections of the bookstore are, in order: poetry, historical nonfiction, fiction, essay, and thought (philosophy and religion). If we had a humor section, you would also find me there. I try not to take myself too seriously, contrary to popular belief.
