"You Don’t Belong Here reads like a Cheever fever dream — grim, literary, and domestically harrowing. As far as narratives of alcohol go, Harper's book is a chilling revision of The Lost Weekend for a modern era." - L.A. Fields, author of Homo Superiors

Morris came to Manderlay Colony to write, to share his truth, and create something literary. But on his last night in the quiet, small town, a series of events unfold that leave him trapped, with shrinking funds and no sure means of escape. As the hours and days pass, as the beer bottles pile up on the bar counter, and as he confronts a man from his past, his sense of self is challenged. Jonathan Harper's debut novel is a snarky, at times brutal, exploration of the modern man who stands at the mouth of a tunnel knowing that what's inside will change him, and not always for the better.

Jonathan Harper is the author of the short story collection Daydreamers and the forthcoming novel You Don’t Belong Here. He received his MFA in Creative Writing from American University. His writing has been featured in numerous publications and anthologies including The Rumpus, The Rappahannock Review, Chelsea Station, East Jasmine Review, Big Lucks, and others. He has received residencies from The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and The Writer’s Colony at Dairy Hollow. He lives in Northern Virginia, watches a lot of period pieces, and loves nerdy board games.
