About this author


Jasun Horsley is an author of several books on popular culture, psychology, and high strangeness. He is a transmedia storyteller, independent scholar, and existential detective. He lives and works in Canada.

Artist’s Statement:

Books and things (the good ones) are like half-drawn maps of independent explorations into undiscovered lands. But to map the unknown means that first you have to get lost.

I seem to have been born that way: lost, with a question mark over my head. Creativity has been a way to fathom my own place in existence—the idea of writing for an audience is one I have always had difficulty with. Yet creative expression is like a two-way bridge between the inside and the outside, and between the one and the many.

For the first 200+ pages this was the smartest, funniest semi-satire on the New Age movement I have ever read; then something weird happened: the satire gets completely swallowed up in an earnest, slightly queasy celebration of the splendors of spiri ...more

The Boy Who Followed Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
Rate this book
Clear rating
Very substandard Highsmith, probably the weakest of the Ripley books, which are the least effective of Highsmith's novels, IMO; ironic as they are the most read and the easiest to find.
A Game for the Living by Patricia Highsmith
Rate this book
Clear rating
Neither best nor worst Highsmith; marred for me by a rather exasperating character, Ramon, the Catholic, and what I suspect was Highsmith's lack of sympathy for him. The back blurb says the book is about a deep friendship, but barring Carol, a lesbia ...more

I read this in one sitting ~ or lying ~ which is pretty unprecedented for me these days.

Berger has a knack for creating ambiguous characters and scenes and for pulling you into the action.

The story is about the worst day of one man's life and it take
