Review:

BOOK OF THE YEAR 2014 — Eimear McBride, New Statesman

‘Style is pre-eminent in Jeff Jackson's eerie and enigmatic debut. The prose works like the expressionless masks worn by killers in horror films.’
— Wall Street Journal

'So powerful it reaffirms my belief that the contemporary can still do remarkable things.'
— Lee Rourke

'There are few coming-of-age-esque novels that don’t make me feel like I’m being lied to, manipulated into caring to the point where I can’t care at all. Mira Corpora is one of those few.'
— VICE

‘It's 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

‘[A] mesmerizing debut, which reads like some cross between Bruno Schulz and the backstories of random characters from Penelope Spheeris’ 1984 film Suburbia. It’s the overarching sensibility that also puts Mira Corpora in a unique group of books that can only be dubbed Punk Lit. ‘
— Flavorwire

‘Jeff Jackson's 'Mira Corpora' is a moving elegy to lost childhood in the dark recesses of America, where both magic and bleakness frequently occur. Jackson is a strong, powerful storyteller, occupying the space where Huck Finn, Dennis Cooper, Lana Del Ray, and Gus Van Sant meet.’
– Niven Govinden
