What People Are Saying

Praise for Anonymous:

"This novel from Tanamor is a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque. Set in a prison, the book follows three inmates—Unknown (in for fraud), Ambiguous (in for murder), and Stud (in for reasons unknown)—as they communicate through the building’s plumbing system, sharing stories and attempting to outdo each other with tales both shocking and bizarre. While the novel is slow going at first, readers who stick around will find the author soon hits his stride. Tanamor writes like a deformed love child of Chuck Palahniuk and Charles Bukowski who has finally discovered its own voice—and the result is a rousing novel that will confuse just as often as it entertains. This is a well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction from a promising writer with lots of potential."  - Publishers Weekly Starred Review

 "Anonymous is one of those margin hugging novels that toes the line between a dark, edgy, cult gem and a commercial bestseller, and should satisfy aficionados of both." - Book Knurd

"...there are moments of great humor and swaths of excellent storytelling that make the book a fun read..." - Mark J. Lehman, Amazon Reviews

“…reveling in the vagaries of unreliable narration, Tanamor proves himself a master of the existential mystery: the question is never whodunit, but who is the ‘who,’ and how do we know that the ‘it’ ever really got done?” – Small Press Reviews

"Jason Tanamor's writing style is often compared to Chuck Palahniuk and it comes as no surprise... This book grips you from the opening sequence and draws you in with dark, edgy, realism and disturbing tales of society's underbelly - the anonymous criminal minds behind bars. The book is quite original in content and incites a whirlwind of emotional reactions to each character's tale. A fascinating read." - Sara Allen, Amazon Reviews

"A good fun read, short and sweet; these characters and their stories will stay with you!" - Brett Starr, Amazon Reviews

"Anonymous is a nice surprise, worth reading for those into slightly experimental fiction..." - Richard Stoehr, Amazon Reviews

“Reading Anonymous is like taking an audio tour of a high security jail, the tales told will shock, challenge and amuse in equal measure. Tanamor has a gift for skimming the scum from the top of a boiling pot of rancid emotion and making you taste it.” – Matt Adcock, Dark Matters Reviews  

"The imagery of Jason Tanamor's Anonymous is often quite effective. Something is undeniably eerie about these disembodied voices detailing their crimes and why they committed them, especially the Greek chorus of unnamed "ghosts" that interject with their own (often creepy and lecherous) thoughts throughout the narrative." - Indiereader

Praise for Hello Lesbian!:  
"I think Jason Tanamor will win the Pulitzer Prize very soon." - Stan Stankos, Comedian 
"Tanamor's humor has the appeal of SNL's 'Deep Thoughts' - it's not just off-beat - it's an entirely different time signature." - Jenna Glatzer, Author of Celine Dion: For Keeps 
"I love the title Hello Lesbian!" - Chuck Palahniuk, Author of Fight Club

Praise for The Extraordinary Life of Shady Gray:

"...quite an interesting book. It has suspense and drama, as well as relationships and personal growth... intriguing storyline and strong personalities of the characters, make a great read." - Marlena Hand, Author Alliance

"Jason Tanamor does an excellent job giving a glimpse into life in a dysfunctional family environment." - Charles J. Kravetz, Keeping Dreams Book Reviews
