Phil Jourdan is the author of Praise of Motherhood (Zero Books), What Precision, Such Restraint (Perfect Edge) and John Gardner: A Tiny Eulogy (Punctum Books).

He is one of the co-founders of the online writing workshop and lit magazine, LitReactor.

“Maybe people are strangers because time makes them strangers, not because you don't know them, and people you've never met are strangers because you've spent so long not knowing them.”
Phil Jourdan, Uncle Manny

“And she wouldn't be there. She'd be off somewhere he'd never find her. That was the nature of the woman he loved, to be elsewhere.”
Phil Jourdan

“Because I am thought to be important I am left alone. They call me doctor but I am not the kind of doctor they believe I am. I cannot mend a broken leg and am useless to everyone onboard. By virtue of my professorship I am granted peace.”

“The mountain in the distance grows darker as we approach it, but it isn't black, and the thought slips into my mind: perfect blackness is impossible now. And because I don't know what that means, and because this is all a dream, I accept the thought unconditionally.”
Phil Jourdan
