About this title

Synopsis:

Jones Inn is about thieves, hustlers, con men, and beautiful junkies. Same old story, same old nothing. Forget Trainspotting, forget Ginsberg. This is a street level crawl through sewers, juvie homes, wet dime bag love, short term chicago squats, and long term slow motion suicides. Tyrell, Scales, sunny, Mary and Paul. five best friends, five pretty losers going down into the hole. Going down hard, going down mean. And when the ride was all over, every memory would be just another old bruise.

About the Author:

Raised in Chicago group homes, Stephen Elliott is a writer who imbues his work with the kind of gravel in the mouth authenticity one can only get from a lifetime of soul crushing experiences. Despite being homeless for over a year and being locked up for a fair portion of his youth, Stephen Elliott completed a degree at the University of Illinois and a masters degree at Northwestern University.

In 1994 Elliot was the winner of the James L. Rainey Award for fiction with his short story entitled "Two Men". More than just another thug aritsan, Elliot is an award winning author of many short stories that have been published in The James White Review, Strong Coffee, Little America, Flowers on the Razorwire and The Sun.
