Jonathan Ludwig

False Starts, Fragments & Other Falsehoods

False Starts, Fragments & Other Falsehoods is Ludwig's first compilation of false starts, fragments and other falsehoods.  It was constructed with an Oliver #5, for the way it fractures the page as the type falls violently but leaves no resonant THUD to startle as it hits.

Available from Throwback Books

Jonathan Ludwig earned his BFA from the University of Oregon.  He is soft-spoken, even when inebriated, and covers his giggles with the back of his hand.  A consecutive three-year member of the Bend, Oregon poetry slam team, he traveled the West Coast performing with perfect awkwardness on countless stages.

Welcome! 

Throwback Books is an independent publisher of hand-crafted chapbooks. We believe the act of turning the page is no longer a required movement in reading--- so we strive to make that action something tangibly enjoyed in each work.
