Jason Korolenko is a musician, writer, and raconteur. His book, RELENTLESS: 30 YEARS OF SEPULTURA, a complete biography covering the struggles, strife, and successes of Brazil's most popular musical export, Sepultura, has been published in four languages worldwide. His novel, THE DAY I LEFT, drove Orion Book Award winner Craig Childs to declare, "I'm walking away from this book feeling dizzy and uncertain of my own circumstance," and was hailed by renowned author Charlie Stella as "a fine debut by a writer with international flare and solid insight into the mania we each, every one of us, carry within our tortured souls."
