Holy Visionary Phantasmagoria! something smells of Frank Stanford something like a unique dreamstate whimsical yet Hot! to lift directly from backcuv: it s a personal Bible full of riddles, revelation, visions and terrible adventure a mystical record . . . Coyotes are running across the dam but ultimately this is Luminous Poetry redifining fictioning. --Toad Suck Review 3D
Tyrone Jaeger lives in Conway, AR and teaches at Hendrix college. His first book, The Runaway Note (Shakespeare & Co, Toad Suck, 2012) was released in July of this year. The book follows the exploits of a boy named Tyro and a cast of his strange companions. . . Jaeger roots his story in a northeastern, rural landscape composed of dirt, rocks, and steaming sh*t; and he's always concerned with the thin scrim between life, death, and the ghosts that pass between it. --Joshua Ware Books Art Photography (joshua-ware.blogspot.com)

The Runaway Note is much more than story-telling; it's myth-making. Jaeger creates a dream world; a flooded ghost town in the Catskills, immersed in the superstitious concerns of the living and tempered by the spiritual disappointments of ghosts that haunt the book's surreal landscape. Tyro, the runaway, tumbles through this strange world at the flash flood pace of a corpse swept up in a swelling river. It's a great read. Once you jump in, you won't want to come up for air.
