Without: Body, Name, Country

Without: Body, Name, Country

“Pick up this book and eat it, I mean love it, I mean eat it.” —Daniel Handler (a.k.a. Lemony Snicket)

“…we see that perfect world crumble with her diagnosis of Guillam-Barre syndrome in which a person’s immune system attacks the nerves.” —Martha Engber

In Meg Johnson’s third full length collection, Without: Body, Name, Country, strange experiences become familiar and familiar experiences become strange, as a human body, a sense of self, and an entire nation all teeter toward the verge of destruction.

In daring poems and intimate flash nonfiction pieces, Johnson portrays a world that is corrupt yet full of possibilities. Sometimes frightening, sometimes funny, one woman’s struggles with health, identity, and politics reveal universal adversity, longing, and wildness.

Reading this book is to climb “a spiral staircase in a tower full of fun house mirrors.” Without: Body, Name, Country is the book you didn’t know you needed.

“A ferocity that has to be read to be believed.” —Shaindel Beers

“Read this collection and marvel.” —Anne Champion

“A fierce, playful, unapologetic, and morally complex examination of life. Those who enjoy memoir and poetry will find both forms seamlessly and searingly interwoven here.” —Mark Leidner

“A spot-on sense of humor evident from page one onward. She circles her own themes returning again and then one more time to investigate what it is to grow up pretty, to remain single after thirty, to face life-altering illness.” —Joanne Nelson $2.99 on Kindle.

14 days in May: A Farewell to My Father, a Man who Should Have Died Sixty Years Ago. A True Story.

14 days in May: A farewell to my father, a man who should have died sixty years ago. A true story.

On May 1st 2011, I traveled from Ecuador to my native country to say goodbye to my dying father. Two intensive weeks followed, where death was constantly looking around the corner, while life was still the focus – his life.

About sixty years earlier, my father survived a serious accident. He was hit by a bullet in his face, a bullet that exploded in his head. Doctors only just managed to save his life. With a new, but maimed face he had to return to his hometown, the small village of his ancestors in the South of the Netherlands.

Back home, he found everything to be exactly the way he left it, but no one seemed to remember him anymore. However, he was determined to pick up his life right where he had left off months before. His former family life, his friendships, his hobbies, his job, and … above all, his relationship with the girl who lived around the corner.

During the two weeks I stayed in the Netherlands, we spoke often about this dramatic period and eventually he asked me to write down his story. With the help of his memories and those of family and friends, but also old letters, diaries, military and medical reports, I reconstructed his personal family history. Embedded though in the inevitable farewell. An inspiring true story. $2.99 on Kindle.

Burn Zones: Playing Life’s Bad Hands

Burn Zones: Playing Life's Bad Hands
“A riches-to-rags memoir that offers unique perspectives on business, punk rock, inequality, cycling, and family” – Kirkus

Life was good for Jorge Newbery. A high school dropout and serial entrepreneur, he had built a real estate empire of over 4,000 apartments across the USA. Taking risks and working tirelessly were the ingredients to his rise. But, he took one risk too many – and ended up $26 million in debt.

As he struggled to regain his footing, he spent what he could to get others to lift him up. But no one did. He discovered that there was only one person who could build him back up. To move forward, he crafted a new life’s purpose: to help others crushed by unaffordable debts rebuild themselves.

Burn Zones is a story of playing life’s bad hands and overcoming adversity against the greatest of challenges. It’s an inspirational story of a man who was pushed to his mental and physical limits, and came out the other side even stronger.

And, most of all, it’s a lesson that you can do the same. $0.99 on Kindle.
