John Jodzio’s work has been featured in a variety of places including This American Life, McSweeney’s, and One Story. He’s the author of the short story collections, Knockout, Get In If You Want To Live and If You Lived Here You’d Already Be Home.
Praise for Knockout:
“The absurd, darkly humorous Americana of Knockout shows Jodzio at his imaginative best.”
—J. Ryan Stradal, author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest
“It’s difficult to write with emotional honesty about the people on the very edge of society, the misfits among misfits. But even when he writes with humor, Jodzio never treats his characters as a joke. He’s a compassionate writer who is refreshingly unafraid to take risks, and his book is, well, a knockout.”
—National Public Radio
