This memoir of “a happy childhood in rural Missouri just before the digital revolution [is] a sweet record of a time and a place that was not Always On.” —St. Louis Post-Dispatch Spanning one year of the author’s life—1984—I Will Not Leave You Comfortless is the intimate memoir of a young boy coming to consciousness in small-town Missouri. The year will bring ten-year-old Jeremy first loves, first losses, and a break from the innocence of boyhood that will never be fully repaired. For Jeremy, the seeming security of his life on the family farm is forever shaken by the life-altering events of that pivotal year. Throughout, he recalls the deeply sensual wonders of his rural Midwestern childhood—bicycle rides in September sunlight; the horizon vanishing behind tall grasses—while stories both heart-wrenching and humorous, tragic and triumphant, Jackson weaves past, present, and future into the rich Missouri landscape. “I could smell the mulberries crushed underfoot and the sweet steam of the cinnamon roll Grandma heated in the toaster oven just for Jeremy, hear the ever-increasing volume of an approaching late-spring storm . . . The year of Jeremy Jackson’s life on which he meditates in I Will Not Leave You Comfortless marked his transition from the perfect happiness of childhood to the much more complex reality of adulthood. It records, as well, the abiding comfort that remains—family, home and love.” —Wichita Eagle “Jackson writes about Missouri as the young Hemingway wrote about Michigan: with a clear eye; with hard-edged nostalgia; and (here’s the thing) with brilliance.” —Darin Strauss, author of Half a Life

Like a Coen brothers noir south of the border, Paraíso is a genre-bending story about love, sibling relationships, and the dark side of paradise. As teens, siblings Peter and Wendy fled their wealthy Philadelphia home in the family station wagon and headed for Mexico, only to be discovered sleeping in the car on the banks of the Mississippi. Now estranged by an apparent betrayal, the two live separate lives. Wendy—a sports photographer—has a new book out, an invitation to Los Cabos, and a chance to complete the trip begun twenty years earlier. But when Wendy’s engine fails near a small town named Paraíso—Paradise—she lingers, exploring its underside in an affair with a dangerous man. Meanwhile, from his apartment in lower Manhattan, Peter watches the Twin Towers fall on a beautiful September day. He knows it’s time to leave his comfortable life, go find Wendy, and make peace with his long-lost sister. A noirish tale reminiscent of David Lynch and the Coen brothers, Paraíso traces the journey from a family’s dark secret to a place where love, and even perfect love, is possible. “A story so compelling, so sinuously told and passing strange, you feel like you can’t take your eyes off the road for a second.” —William Finnegan, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life “Chaplin has written a genre-crossing novel based on family dysfunction that becomes darker and more compelling as Peter chases after Wendy and pages turn.” —Booklist “[An] expertly paced noir fairy tale . . . Gorgeous, vivid scenery and fascinating people enrich a story that is both eccentric and universal.” —Shelf Awareness
