#TPQ5: COLLIN JONES

Charles Bukowski

He always had a way of shucking the flattery out of language, leaving only a pure, unalloyed image.

David Foster Wallace

His writing style was a kind of conversational maximalism—a style that never faltered in letting the reader know that “yes, I’ve felt that way too.”

Michel Houellebecq

Houellebecq’s writing reveals a painful truth: Sometimes things don’t get better—sometimes they only get worse.

Albert Camus

Camus’ lyricism attempts to engage with and define the Absurd—the existential cramp created by the human mind’s search for meaning and the universe’s gentle indifference toward that search.

House of Leaves – Mark Danielewski’s

Mark Danielewski’s masterpiece manages to strike a balance between a horror story and a love story. All of which is borne out through a non-linear, format-annihilating style that engages the reader on a level rarely found in fiction.


Collin is a practicing Stoic and UFO aficionado who happens to be a graduate student at Minnesota State University. When he is not writing journalism, he is working on his forthcoming novel from Close to the Bone Publishing.
