"A return - this seems to be one of the things I'm expected to write about. And now that I return, now that I find myself here, I haven't even left the airport and I'm already toying with the idea of writing a return, perhaps just to surrender."
Nine stories. Nine ways of not being at home. Nine confrontations to the limits of fiction and memoir. Jolts is a playful and honest exploration of the joys and sorrows of lives lived in-between places. A collection that travels across time, space, and language, in order to deliver the gospel of the Latin American short story.
Sdrigotti rises to peak form with JOLTS, following a series of cult publications - Shitstorm, Dysfunctional Males and Triptico. With this book he joins the likes of Eley Williams and Clare Fisher as another special Influx Press short story writer.
