Industry Comments on Jim Meirose's Work:
Editors, Bluestem: "No one writes like Jim Meirose"
Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting:
" A good one is 'The Damned Eleven' by Jim Meirose. It is the best...incredible..."
George Salis, Author of Sea Above, Sun Below and Editor of The Collidescope:
"...superbly accomplished novel (Le Overgivers au Club de la Résurrection) ...will surely be one of the best novels you read this year."
Tom Ball, Senior Editor, Fleas on the Dog.
"Meirose is a trickster stylist and while you might call him ‘Joycean’ his lyric signature is lighter and a little more playful than the author of ‘Ulysses’. His extraordinary word play is like listening to a dialect you don’t quite understand but from which you can nevertheless glean meaning."
Norman Conquest, Editor, Black Scat Books:
"A magician’s hand is quicker than the eye, and the same is true of Meirose’s fiction. It’s experimental magic and I haven’t a clue how he does it."
Rosemarie Tantra Bensko, author of The Agents of the Nevermind psychological suspense series, and gold medal winning novelist:
"Meirose's prose pulses with life, infusing you with intensity of each moment arising surprised. "
Richard S. Bailey, author of Off on a Tangent and Tiresias Lies: The Insidious Plot of the Men with One Left Shoe :
"Jim Meirose is a writer of distinctive voice and vision"
Jane Rosenberg LaForge, author of An Unsuitable Princess and The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War:
"To read only one of Jim Meirose’s novels is to miss out on the scope and depth of his surreal vision"
Warwick Newnham, contributing Editor for Experimental Discourse at OPEN: Journal of Arts & Letters:"Like Ballard and Burroughs, Meirose works in the realm of literature as pure consciousness: a tour de force of post-modernist philosophy as writing."
