Get In If You Want To Live


Order John Jodzio's short story collection Get In If You Want To Live and find out why why Fred Armisen said the book is “lovely and captivating."

From bears hooked on sex outside the species to hookers hooked on a neighbor’s bomb chili recipe, Jodzio shanghais readers in the course of only a few pages and sucks them into 19 different gonzo worlds populated by intensely unapologetic characters. Each story is accompanied by a specially curated illustration by local and international artists. The entire book was designed using the eye-popping aesthetic Paper Darts Magazine is known for.

What others are saying:

“John Jodzio is one of those weirdos who it's fun to spend time with—not in real life, of course, but on the page—because his stories are laugh-out-loud funny and have a strange, uncanny and memorable edge to them. And even if you don't like to read his book has cool pictures. It was totally worth the $200 I paid for it." —Dan Chaon, author of AWAIT YOUR REPLY and STAY AWAKE.

“Get In If you Want To Live is full of genuine laughs for the LOL generation. It's fantastical whimsy meets potty mouth, gutter mind brilliance with some beautifully twisted artwork to accompany poignantly filthy stories." —Kat George, editor of Thought Catalog
