Witty Wag Writes Whimsical Wordplay in AMPHIGORY ALMANAC, Published by Outskirts Press
Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated literary collections and essays book from Virginia Beach, VA, author Brandon Craig Jones.
By: Outskirts Press
MEET MR.J encompasses a myriad of assorted amphigories ranging from plays on Ben Franklin, lists of one-liners, short stories, teleplays on ‘bromance’
Finally a voice for an unspoken generation speaks with acerbic wit and ear tickling vernacular that rings true. Parenthetically, 236 typos (i.e. errors of grammar, syntax, semantics, linguistics, etc) have been intentionally left, not to exasperate a maladroit writing skill, but to accent how frivolous and moot rules can be in creative writing. It’s a “Where’s Waldo” of Errors making it interactive for the grammar gurus’ scrutiny.
Sometimes the stream of consciousness may seem scatterbrained and unfocused, but this was not done adventitiously. Each word was diligently and rigorously labored over. The steadfast and unwavering pace of self deprecating and self disparaging levity reminds the reader that the mission of the book is to be jocular and jovial at its own faults, follies, and foibles.
Debuting author, Brandon C. Jones, hits the scene with his complete collection of work. Each chapter is autonomous and non-interdependent on the others. It’s the kind of treatise that can be read in several different settings without losing momentum. Tone, word choice and style fluctuate, but motifs of a throwback to archetypal Woody Allen’s erudite absurdity act as the midwife to the birth of a refreshing style of American literature.
