In an era defined by massive corporate disasters, Tea Parties, state-sanctioned torture, and cultural alienation, people throw in their lot with consumerism and prophets and pundits wishing to harvest the uncertainty of their times, in this tough debut story collection by Jared Yates Sexton.

ADVANCE PRAISE

“Laced through with booze and betrayal, and populated by half‐witted quick wits and good eggs with bad karma, Sexton’s stories get under your skin, split your ribs, and worm their way heartward.”

Product Description

By Jared Yates Sexton

When Jared Yates Sexton finished his MFA and returned to his hometown in Indiana, he found a population plagued by the kind of turmoil and tension usually reserved for fiction. Unemployment and uncertainty lurked everywhere he looked. In his debut story collection, this pervasive turbulence tilts into the fantastical as we observe the inspired, absurd, and even horrific moments in the lives of lost and luckless Midwesterners looking for something to believe in.

Through language that’s both striking and unassuming, Sexton creates a dangerous and disturbing world in which everything and everyone teeters precariously on the edge of total chaos; a world that bears a startling resemblance to our own.

Praise for An End to All Things

“The stories in Jared Yates Sexton’s An End to All Things are, indeed, about ends—ofrelationships, of dreams, of innocence—but they also speak eloquently to the means of theseends. Laced through with booze and betrayal, and populated by half‐witted quick wits and goodeggs with bad karma, Sexton’s stories get under your skin, split your ribs, and worm their wayheartward.”
-Tom Noyes, author of Spooky Action at a Distance

“The characters in Jared Yates Sexton’s stories are desperate. They are obsessed. They speak alanguage that is part barfight, part howl, part brokenhearted country song playing on a skippingvinyl loop. These are stories you want to listen to as much as read, full of fierce and searing andmelancholy truths.”
-Chad Simpson, author of Tell Everyone I Said Hi
