Shane Jones

Carefully crafted, precious and a little bit magical, Light Boxes by Shane Jones is like a porcelain doll—a children’s toy whose true artistry can be appreciated only by an adult. Published in a print run of 500 by the tiny Publishing Genius Press in 2009; grassroots blog buzz led to cult status for Jones's debut novel, a film deal with Spike Jonze and this new Penguin edition. And there’s no doubt that Jones can write: His spare, alliterative sentences are flawless and sometimes delightful.
