PALACES (the novel!)

My first novel, PALACES, will be published by Two Dollar Radio in January 2018. Preorder it here.

"A fierce fever dream paused at that worst moment before we wake up. A tightening loop of the tension of untying and retying ourselves down: to people, to place, to motive and motivation. Less a meditation than a persistent jab in the ribs, repeating patterns of distrust and surrender. Addictively disorienting."
—Jac Jemc, author of The Grip of It and My Only Wife

"In this singular debut novel that reads like a cross between Derek Jarman's Jubilee and an unsettling folk ballad, Jacobs narrates the journey of two Midwestern pilgrims, each striving for ascetic purity both in their possessions and in their emotional lives, as they silently war against the ostentation of the wealthy, the dread expectations of gender, maybe against object permanence itself. It feels like The Road, but with less faith in humanity, and this Simon Jacobs is a literary talent to watch."
—Jeanne Thornton, author of The Dream of Doctor Bantam
