About J. A. Tyler
Books By J. A. Tyler
As they travel from cage to bars to glass, over all the fake landscapes of the zoo, Jonah wonders about his parents, what they've done and haven't, and what he has and hasn't done in return. He realizes, as he goes, the complexities of growing up.

"What Tyler and Woods depict so eloquently are the lowlands . . . after the passion is gone and the wide-open stink of intimacy prevails.”
– Nava Renek, American Book Review
“J.A. Tyler and John Dermot Woods have made an object as beautiful as a paper ship." – Luca Dipierro, author of Biscotti Neri and Das Ding
“Tyler and Woods volley language and image to construct a new and bracing presentation of identity as at once smeared across a centerless space and anchored by the weight of a single human heart.” – Evan Lavender-Smith, author of Avatar
“The incantatory, hypnotic examinations of ‘me and you and how we are connected’ unfold along an edge where Martin Buber meets André Breton.” – Jon Cotner & Andy Fitch, authors of Ten Walks/Two Talks
In this startling collaborative novel, Tyler and Woods tell a story that explores the closely linked experiences of communion and suffocation, creating their narrator's world by setting a beat with mesmerizing chapters of rhythmic prose exploded by frantic full-color illustrations. This book could as easily be described as a horror novel as a love story. The authors’ experimental techniques come together in a book that tells the most classic tale of passion and loss.
