              Jibba And Jibba (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Donatelli, Daniel

              WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT. Jibba And Jibba is a raw, unusual novel rife with sexual images and swear words that are erupting out of the honest minds of its boorish narrators. The first half of the book is written from the perspective of a confused 19-year-old college freshman (ni...cknamed Jibba ) who returns home from school for a long winter break. He and his best friend have been engaging in an escalating series of masochistic games, and they're both endeavoring to figure out where it's all leading. The second half of the novel is written from the perspective of a 29-year-old proofreader (nicknamed Jibba ) who is struggling to deal with the anxious, immature person he's become. He has to fly home from California because he receives devastating news about someone in his family. Both narratives follow their main characters' agony over the boring drudgery of adulthood's slow tragedy-one perspective through the fresh eyes of a young, jilted believer, and the other through the tired eyes of a professional pessimist-and both are highlighted by a dark humor that results from the largely unreliable narrators' deranged attempts at lucidity. Jibba And Jibba is a great read for anyone who isn't afraid of the cold waters of subconscious honesty.

              Music Made By Bears (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Daniel Donatelli's literary debut, Music Made By Bears, combines beautifully written prose with a multilayered, thematic story that challenges readers to reflect on the meaning, purpose, and depth of life. A seemingly endless canvas of descriptive natural imagery provides the set...ting for this linguistically melodic novel, which takes place in an isolated religious community whose long-sought seclusion and harmony are disrupted by the arrival of two mirrored opposites-one invited, and one not. Music Made By Bears is a quick read of high-quality, thought-provoking fiction.

              Oh, Title! (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Donatelli, Daniel; Illustrated by Kuzmic, Zach

              A literary yawp; a hundred-thousand words; a compelling, sundry collection of stories and essays- Oh, Title! is a unique offering. At times a humorous memoir of the author-be-damned, at times a compilation of impressively eclectic fiction, this strange book is almost always one p...age away from turning into something else. You'll grip it tensely, then you'll put it down to laugh, then you'll tuck it under your arm while you look up a wonderful new word-but always you'll go to it with affection because clearly it was written with love. In reading the collection it quickly becomes apparent, between the lines, (and sometimes right on the lines, ) that Daniel Donatelli loves readers-more than himself, even-and that every word of this book, from the invigorating heights of its descriptive bliss to the comical blue sewers of its sometimes deep scatology, was placed there with a simple hope: that those noble readers might find a thoughtful enjoyment in the sum. The short stories (and to a large extent they are truly short indeed) are a sweet, alchemical mix of philosophy and fiction; the essays are engaging attempts at honesty and insight; the pastel parades are thought-provoking, entertaining little palette cleansers between the beastly rounds; and the final pieces-the two disturbingly funny teleplays and the giant poem of existential and linguistic gymnastics-display a refreshing (or maybe bewildering) creativity. The sum is greater than the parts, and the parts are greater than the sum, and all logic goes right out the window and onto the page. Knock, knock. Who's there? Oh, Title!

              The Great Anti-American Novel (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Donatelli, Daniel

              The Great Anti-American Novel is a memoir written by a confessed mass-murderer in an offshore federal detention facility. The narrator's penetratingly satirical story centers on his small family coming together and being ripped apart by a global economic and cultural collapse tha...t triggers a second American civil war, setting up the events that ultimately result in the narrator, Dante Thompson, and his adopted sister Sylvia orchestrating and carrying out an explosive, blood-gushingly violent retribution for the tragic and untimely deaths of their heroic father and former nation. The adopted siblings are rescued from an orphanage fire by an anti-American survivalist, Dennis Justin, who, given the state of the nation/world at the time of the fire, then feels compelled to help raise the otherwise hopeless children. But trying to get far away from a draconian and desperate American government and culture only proves to be a temporary solution for the aberrant family, and eventually Dennis Justin is killed in front of the children during a heinously brutal government experiment, and consequently their mother-figure, Emily Thompson, is sent to a giant concentration camp for her outraged reaction to her lover's death. Together with their uncle -Dr. James Thompson, Emily's brother-the rescued kids head out into the vast continental conflict to try to survive by providing medical help where they can. While on the road, they're contacted by a very strange-acting government drone that leads them to the concentration camp where Emily is being held. From there, things get even worse as America enters a crossroads where past, present, and future are all FUBAR. But eventually, endeavoring to both avenge their parents as well as cut the Gordian Knot of America's radically divided decay, the narrator and his sister emerge on the national stage with their own highly controversial solutions to a dying America's many pernicious problems.
