3 reviews for The Jaywalker

  1. The Jaywalker is a compendium of darker than dark jokes, hallucinogenic nursery rhymes, tragic sex, moments of true life pathos, afterlife perversions of every description, distorted parallel worlds vividly illustrated by Dame Darcy. We don’t know where we are and yet can’t stop reading. The way these strobe light stories connect and disconnect is a perfect kind of literary black magic.
    —Jacob Wren, Polyamorous Love Songs

  2. The Jaywalker is gory, enchanting, otherworldly, vaudeville. Lisa Carver is a poet, animal, goddess, ruler, a river of joy. I love that she’s experimenting with form here. Her wild style inspires me to be a better writer.
    —Jill Soloway, Transparent

  3. I can’t recommend this book enough. Jaywalker is like a newspaper compendium full of stories written especially because the writer knows you want to read about them. Weird but true narratives about Easter Island natives, bloody crimes committed with pliers and plastic baseball bats, poetic, sexy, and funny just like the great Lisa Carver herself. I’ve been reading her stuff for years, this is the best yet. The illustrations by the brilliant cartoonist Dame Darcy add just the perfect note of creepy grandeur. A masterly book! And yes, I looked up the word “masterly.”
    —Tony Millionaire, Sock Monkey
