John has a set of linked stories, MOVIELOA! out June, 2016. Blurbs came from David Shields, Sam Lipsyte, and others, and the stories appeared in Conjunctions, The Collagist, and elsewhere. See the Events page.
The Chicago Tribune listed MOVIEOLA! as one of "#0 Books You Should Read This Summer."
Dzanc also brought out John's 2014 selection of essays and criticism, The Sea-God's Herb. With work from the New York Times and many other places, the subjects range from novels and poetry to visual arts and TV.
Publishers' Weekly called Sea-God's Herb "poetic" and "fascinating;" Brooklyn Rail called it "important" and "provocative." There were interviews in The Believer and elsewhere. For more, see the Books page.
John's first four titles are in electronic editions on Dzanc: two story collections and two novels. All formats are available. Bedlam, John's first book, includes a new author's preface and two stories previously uncollected
John did the translation of Tullio Pironti's memoir, Books & Rough Business, which received wide notice in Italy.
