"...when, after working for almost three years...I certainly and clearly understood...that, of these writings of mine, people who did not know me personally could understand absolutely nothing."
--G.I Gurdjieff (13 January 1866/1872/1877? – 29 October 1949)
(Now Jesus himself had pointed out that a prophet has no honour in his own country’ (John 4:44))

Available Work by Jim Meirose:
"Middle-aged bachelor Franklin Thompson and his widowed Mother Audrey live together in a quiet small town. But their lives are periodically marred by the repeated attacks of a horrid mental disorder which they share..."
"This is a profoundly original novel. It is unsettling, it is anxiety ridden, and it is also quite humorous. From the perspective of Franklin Thompson, it is a sort of pathetic, painful, traumatizing Odyssey..it exposes us to a vast array of characters and events, sometimes shocking and often grotesque. The book intersects with a parodic alternative gospel of events in the life of Jesus... or some Jesus-like surrogate...in an atemporal, profane world that is routinely intruded upon and disturbed...The novel is an experience to be had. Enjoy.

Comments on Jim Meirose's Work:
Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting:
“…by Jim Meirose. …the best, an incredible novel.”
Norman Conquest, Editor, Black Scat Books:
"A magician’s hand is quicker than the eye, and the same is true of Meirose’s fiction. It’s experimental magic and I haven’t a clue how he does it."
Rosemarie Tantra Bensko, author of The Agents of the Nevermind psychological suspense series, and gold medal winning novelist:
"Meirose's prose pulses with life, infusing you with intensity of each moment arising surprised. The robust words leap for joy ... There really are no limits. There is no end of worlds sentence to sentence with a narrator as liberated as this one, free to obsessively imagine. I laughed out loud throughout...”
Richard S. Bailey, author of Off on a Tangent and Tiresias Lies: The Insidious Plot of the Men with One Left Shoe :
"Jim Meirose is a writer of distinctive voice and vision"
Jane Rosenberg LaForge, author of An Unsuitable Princess and The Hawkman: A Fairy Tale of the Great War:
"To read only one of Jim Meirose’s novels is to miss out on the scope and depth of his surreal vision"
