A modern day Beat combination of Rocky Balboa uppercuts and Kerouacian human perception, The Weekender exhibits the greatest fear of all rebellious writers: ending up inside the slammer.
Here's what's being said about The Weekender:
"The Weekender is a tight fever dream drenched in dark cavity searches, Spam sandwiches, and the lonely movement of time. A modern day Beat combination of Rocky Balboa uppercuts and Kerouacian human perception, Nate Jordon's writing fires off the page like a consecrated bar fight, splattering the walls with clock springs, a raw fortitude of language, and a fair amount of blood."
- Rob Geisen, author of Beautiful Graveyards and Paper Thin
"It isn't often that one comes across a writer that's a worthy inheritor of the mantle of anything, let alone the legacy of the likes of Hunter S. Thompson. This little book has it all—all the wit, humor, detail, biting critique, deft prose, and an eye for the absurd that one could hope for. More than that, it seethes with authenticity, which is a joy when one finds it. Pack this sucker away in your kit bag; it's the perfect book to take along on that 'weekend' getaway of your own . . . lest you get stuck with an old western out of a hotel lobby (if you're lucky) where the hero's heart is full of ice cream and puppies. Or worse. So plan ahead. Believe me, you'd be better off with Jordon, a beer, and a porch with a view."
- Travis Cebula, author of Under the Sky They Lit Cities and Jamaica
"In The Weekender, Jordon describes the greatest fear of all literarily-inclined small-time crooks: ending up inside the slammer with the pros. Fascinating characters and hilarious dialogue populate this story that manages to be both hilarious and sobering."
- Nicholas B. Morris, author of Tapeworm
“Extremely tight and effective. The setting is so effectual it makes you feel like you’re there, and you don’t fucking want to be there. Powerful piece.”
- Jack Collom, author of Red Car Goes By and Cold Instant
"Nate Jordon obliterates all decaying museums of stuporous thought and blasts us into a fugue state of thrombosis, both potent and life-altering."
- Meg Tuite, author of Domestic Apparition and Fiction Editor with The Santa Fe Literary Review and Connotation Press
"Jordon's not going to flower things up for you."
- Bonnie ZoBell, author of What Happened Here (Press 53 2013)
