A Nasty Piece of Work
number one
by J. Andersen


J. Andersen loves to play with expectations. An ode to a city turns into a collection of its flaws. A beautiful waitress takes her belly button off at night. An embarrassed son watches his father choke to death on the very thing the son hates so much. Through experimental form and style, this collection explores the human condition, the nature of reality, and the thoughts we often keep to ourselves. A Nasty Piece of Work—Volume 1 is a collection of short fiction, poetry, and memoir written to entertain and provoke thought. It will appeal to fans of experimental writing, offering something different in comparison to other mainstream works.


J. Andersen has wanted to be a writer since he was seven years old, when he submitted a partial script for a Doctor Who episode to the BBC. Sadly, it was never used—but he did get a positive response from the producers, and it ignited the drive to never stop writing. Andersen attended Sheridan College, where he received the Alliance Communications Graduate Writing Award (Media Writing) in 1992. He enjoys studying music, linguistics, and fiction, and loves playing and recording music as well as creating collages. Andersen lives in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, with his son and their pet dog, Fluffy.
