Fiction. "I've never read anything quite like A MOMENTARY JOKEBOOK. It is wonderfully intelligent, terribly funny, thought provoking, often wise and always compelling. Think Milan Kundera meets South Park. What unifies this wide ranging work is Jayson Iwen's fresh approach to form and language, and his ability to surprise us and turn us on our heads"--Tom Barbash, author of The Last Good Chance.
