Fiction. The formal playfulness of Christopher Carter Sanderson's novel, THE TOO-BRIEF CHRONICLE OF JUDAH LOWE, is visually apparent at a glance. It consists of two parts, each composed of a series of short fragments. The first part, 79/79/'79, has 79 titled sections of 79 words each, and is set in 1979. The second, @1000thenovel, is set in 1980, and consists of roughly 1000 tweets of 140 characters each; the story also has 140 characters. The book is far more, however, than a formalist game. It is a deeply affecting Bildungsroman in which an adolescent explores many different windows into himself and his emerging world, and where the unity and plurality of experience are vividly encountered together. It's a masterful experiment in the best sense, and a deeply affecting story.

From the Author:

The truth, 140 characters at a time. Looking back without lying about the shattered fragments of 1979 and 1980. Drop in again and again; the chapters are short. Memories before social media, barked out on social media... that somehow captures the quality of that time better than anything could have then. Jump in.

From the Back Cover:

"Fascinating! The best ever hyper-reality depiction of a certain type of high school experience experienced by those who grow up to write Twitter novels."  --Anne Kadet, Wall Street Journal"A persuasive rendering of the aimlessness, corruption and squalor of adolescent life in America. Sanderson's Judah Lowe powerfully reminds us that opportunity and privilege are no substitute for a viable path to one's own redemption." --Yoram Hazony, Author of 'The Philosophy of Hebrew Scripture'
