♯ NOVELS

WE’RE SO FAMOUS: A NOVEL by Jaime Clarke, with an introduction by Charles Bock and featuring an afterword entitled TYPICAL OF THE TIMES: GROWING UP IN THE CULTURE OF SPECTACLE
(Bloomsbury)

Jaime Clarke pulls off a sympathetic act of sustained male imagination: entering the minds of innocent teenage girls dreaming of fame. A glibly surreal world where the only thing wanted is notoriety and all you really desire leads to celebrity and where stardom is the only point of reference. What’s new about this novel is how unconsciously casual the characters’ drives are. This lust is as natural to them as being American-it’s almost a birthright.  –  Bret Easton Ellis

Jaime Clarke is a masterful illusionist; in his deft hands, emptiness seems full, teenage pathos appears sassy and charming. We’re So Famous is a blithe, highly entertaining indictment of the permanent state of adolescence that trademarks our culture, a made-for-TV world where innocence is hardly a virtue, ambition barely a value system –  Bob Shacochis

Darkly and pinkly comic, this is the story of a trio of teenage American girls and their pursuit of the three big Ms of American life: Music, Movies and Murder. An impressive debut by a talented young novelist. – Jonathan Ames

We’re So Famous smartly anticipates a culture re-configured by the quest for fame. The starry-eyed girls at the center of this rock-and-roll fairy tale are the predecessors of today’s selfie-snappers. With biting wit and wry humor, Clarke brilliantly reminds us that we’ve always lived for likes. – Mona Awad

VERNON DOWNS: A NOVEL by Jaime Clarke (Roundabout Press. Reprinted by Bloomsbury.)

Vernon Downs is a gripping, hypnotically written and unnerving look at the dark side of literary adulation. Jaime Clarke’s tautly suspenseful novel is a cautionary tale for writers and readers alike–after finishing it, you may start to think that J.D. Salinger had the right idea after all. –Tom Perrotta

Moving and edgy in just the right way. Love (or lack of) and Family (or lack of) is at the heart of this wonderfully obsessive novel. – Gary Shteyngart

All strong literature stems from obsession. Vernon Downs belongs to a tradition that includes Nicholson Baker’s U and I, Geoff Dyer’s Out of Sheer Rage, and—for that matter—Pale Fire. What makes Clarke’s excellent novel stand out isn’t just its rueful intelligence, or its playful semi-veiling of certain notorious literary figures, but its startling sadness. Vernon Downs is first rate. —Matthew Specktor

Vernon Downs is a brilliant meditation on obsession, art, and celebrity. Charlie Marten’s mounting fixation with the titular Vernon is not only driven by the burn of heartbreak and the lure of fame, but also a lost young man’s struggle to locate his place in the world. Vernon Downs is an intoxicating novel, and Clarke is a dazzling literary talent. — Laura van den Berg

An engrossing novel about longing and impersonation, which is to say, a story about the distance between persons, distances within ourselves. Clarke’s prose is infused with music and intelligence and deep feeling. — Charles Yu

Vernon Downs is a fascinating and sly tribute to a certain fascinating and sly writer, but this novel also perfectly captures the lonely distortions of a true obsession. — Dana Spiotta

WORLD GONE WATER: A NOVEL by Jaime Clarke (Roundabout Press. Reprinted by Bloomsbury.)

Funny and surprising, World Gone Water is terrific fun to read and, as a spectacle of bad behavior, pretty terrifying to contemplate. ― Adrienne Miller

Jaime Clarke’s World Gone Water is so fresh and daring, a necessary book, a barbaric yawp that revels in its taboo: the sexual and emotional desires of today’s hetero young man. Clarke is a sure and sensitive writer, his lines are clean and carry us right to the tender heart of his lovelorn hero, Charlie Martens. This is the book Hemingway and Kerouac would want to read. It’s the sort of honesty in this climate that many of us aren’t brave enough to write. ―Tony D’Souza

This unsettling novel ponders human morality and sexuality, and the murky interplay between the two. Charlie Martens is a compelling antihero with a voice that can turn on a dime, from shrugging naiveté to chilling frankness. World Gone Water is a candid, often startling portrait of an unconventional life. ― J. Robert Lennon

Charlie Martens is my favorite kind of narrator, an obsessive yearner whose commitment to his worldview is so overwhelming that the distance between his words and the reader’s usual thinking gets clouded fast. World Gone Water will draw you in, make you complicit, and finally leave you both discomfited and thrilled. ― Matt Bell

Charlie Martens will make you laugh. More, he’ll offend and shock you while making you laugh. Even trickier: he’ll somehow make you like him, root for him, despite yourself and despite him. This novel travels into the dark heart of male/female relations and yet there is tenderness, humanity, hope. Jaime Clarke rides what is a terribly fine line between hero and antihero. Read and be astounded.” — Amy Grace Loyd

GARDEN LAKES: A NOVEL by Jaime Clarke (Bloomsbury)

It takes some nerve to revisit a bulletproof classic, but Jaime Clarke does so, with elegance and a cool contemporary eye, in this cunningly crafted homage to Lord of the Flies. He understands all too well the complex psychology of boyhood, how easily the insecurities and power plays slide into mayhem when adults look the other way. – Julia Glass

Jaime Clarke reminds us that if the banality of evil is indeed a viable truth, its seeds are most likely sewn among adolescent boys. –Brad Watson

In the flawlessly imagined Garden Lakes, Jaime Clarke pays homage to Lord of the Flies and creates his own vivid, inadvertently isolated community.  As summer tightens its grip, and adult authority recedes, his boys gradually reveal themselves to scary and exhilarating effect.  In the hands of this master of suspense and psychological detail, the result is a compulsively readable novel. – Margot Livesey

Smart, seductive, and suggestively sinister, Garden Lakes is a disturbingly honest look at how our lies shape our lives and destroy our communities. Read it: Part three in one of the best literary trilogies we have. – Scott Cheshire

As tense and tight and pitch-perfect as Clarke’s narrative of the harrowing events at Garden Lakes is, and as fine a meditation it is on Golding’s novel, what deepens this book to another level of insight and artfulness is the parallel portrait of Charlie Martens as an adult, years after his fateful role that summer, still tyrannized, paralyzed, tangled in lies, wishing for redemption, maybe fated never to get it. Complicated and feral, Garden Lakes is thrilling, literary, and smart as hell. – Paul Harding

♯ MEMOIR

BOOKMARKED: THE GREAT GATSBY BY F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
(IG Publishing)

Jaime Clarke’s ode to Gatsby is a completely winning, honest ode to everything: the yearning of an outsider, for success, the drama of the work world, the seduction and darkness of wealth, the search for love and the complex, bumpy life of a writer.  The Nick Carraway of Phoenix stakes his own literary territory here; a charming and engaging book. — Karen E. Bender

Jaime Clarke has penned a smart, funny, beguiling account of his love affair with America’s favorite novel.  This book, like its narrator, lives “both inside Fitzgerald’s pages and out,” the best case of literary obsession I’ve had the pleasure of reading since Nicholson Baker’s U & I.  A must-read, and not just for Gatsby fans. — David James Poissant
