Christine Zidar is a woman plagued by voices visions and delusions, but manages to keep her “business” together for a number of years, until she is suddenly forced to deal with the fact that her hoarder Mother with whom she lives has had their house condemned and she and Christine are forced with eviction.

"There’s something Jim Meirose does when he writes, and its definitely ‘the hard way.’ As a reader you have to earn his sentences, one after the other, to get to the bliss, the ecstasy. In this case, it’s the very top of Mount Everest. In life, it’s the very top of an author’s skill. It’s the reason I published a chapbook of his years ago and it’s the reason I still still love reading him, climbing that mountain."

— Christopher Bowen, author of We Were Giants.

"Flannery O’Connor and Samuel Beckett aren’t dead; they’re just found each other in the mind of Jim Meirose. ‘Mount Everest’ takes grotesqueries and near-nihilistic fetishes and pours them into a nightmare that is sometimes funny, always vivid, and unexpectedly incisive. Surreal, scary, even scorching, ‘Mount Everest’ is a look at our trivial ambitions and pastoral fantasies, and the dreamscapes that tell us more about reality than our waking hours ever could."

— Jane Rosenberg LaForge, author of An Unsuitable Princess

"In a house moldering in trash, a young woman wades throughher own delusions, as she earns her living being used and discarded like the refuse around her. At every turn, Meirose forces you to feel the weight of our own consumption and the need to make our world clean."

— Trevor Richardson, author of Dystopia Boy and editor of The Subtopian

"Meirose's Mount Everest is a truly unique and indelible work, at once haunting and insightful with a great story and insight into a troubled mind. Meirose's narrative is compassionate without necessarily championing his protagonist's pained soul and that's a neat trick. Great writing and worthy read!"

Steven Gillis, author of Benchere In Wonderland
