“Tim Jones-Yelvington doesn’t push the envelope. He kicks the shit out of it. If ever there was a writer who could garner a rock star following, it would be this man.”
—Roxane Gay, author of An Untamed State

“This is the short story collection as playful dance party among serious things—a remix of pop culture, gay sex and celebrity, ranging from the confectionary to the visionary. A collection of sparks for various fires, from a bold young talent finding his way forward.”

—Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night

“Beautifully written in perfectly realized sentences, with dead- on moments of recognition that require the reader to pause and savor the pleasure of rereading, these stories are brilliantly original, sexually frank, even a bit frightening perhaps, but very funny. Surreally, subversively, wonderfully funny.”

—Susan Nussbaum, author of Good Kings, Bad Kings

“Tim Jones-Yelvington’s This is a Dance Movie! feels like a wound your dear childhood friend begged you to look at, and when you peered in it oozed glitter. This collection leans in, familiar, knowable, and then it dazzles you, leaving you blinking, waiting impatiently for when you can see again to read more.”

—Lindsay Hunter, author of Ugly Girls
