The War is Language:
101 Short Works --An experimental collection of flash fiction
The War is Language: 101 Short Works is a disordered compilation that includes absurdest letters to a fake advice columnist.
As a whole, this high-impact panic attack of prose poetry and flash fiction probes identity in experience. The book explores memory and dichotomy by focusing on the impressions of a female soldier in 21st-century America. The book’s letters to a fake advice columnist weave in a sarcastic interaction with an absurd existential authority figure. The book calls into question our post-postmodern establishment of anti-authority conformists.

2000 Deciduous Trees
2000 Deciduous Trees is an exploration of individual experience selected from Nath Jones’s ‘90s zine, The Skirt. The writing resists losing its balance during a time when gas was cheap and no one drove slowly on the cusp of a new millennium. The voice yearns for change. But nothing can be done in a twenty-something world where one-night stands get forgotten with execution-style murders.

This collection received an Honorable Mention at the 2012 Paris Book Festival.
You'll be entranced by these twenty-four stories as Nath Jones finds her way into this fun and biting life. She conducts you from the kaleidoscopic moment when a toddler loses her innocence to the last breath an old man takes in a rowboat at sunrise.
- Acquainted w/ Squalor
Acquainted with Squalor
This is the fourth and final book in the On Impulse eBook Series, which explores narrative from catharsis to craft.
These stories were written from 2006 to 2010 while Nath Jones worked on her MFA in creative writing at Northwestern University. Nath edited them in 2014 with Sally Arteseros.
These fully-formed short stories may provide readers with a complete experience but there are fewer associative pathways for readers to explore.
