Overview

Welcome to Nowhere...
Thus begins the ultimate urban myth which unfold in the pages of y; a satirical romp through the labyrinth of New York City chasing a mischievous band of dreamers into the mystical mountains upon the Hudson.
Follow along as the mostly bored and wholly gullible freelance journalist James Campion discovers the exploits of y, as they lay bare the age of celebrity, media manipulation and artistic hubris.
It is a hilariously ridiculous, fantastical, uproarious ride along paths never before traveled, hearing words never before spoke and ideas never dared revealed.
Yy challenges readers to maintain balance on the high-wire, where the fragile line between creativity and insanity stretches across a generation, a city, and a furious duel that asks; what is art and who decides?
Outlandish characters, absurd scenarios and one bizarre ending underline y’s boldest proclamation; “This is not a story...this is y.”

About the Author

James Campion is a freelance writer and broadcaster whose main goal as an author is to comb the depths of the human spirit and find anything there to possibly exploit. He began his literary journey in the miserable world of journalism where the cannibals and vampires became his sources and the weary and disconnected read him voraciously. A baseball strike, long nights paining over a sports book, and a nasty break-up forced him into the crazed world of the New Jersey Club where he finished his first book, "Deep Tank Jersey." He is currently penning a column called "Reality Check" for the Aquarian Weekly and fighting editors of all shapes and sizes throughout the US. His second book of essays, letters, and columns called "Fear No Art" is presently being essemlbed for escape.

I found Y to be a very clever , well written book. Cynical , laced with wit and sarcasm campion makes you believe in his characters even though they're so unbelievable. Great banter between characters and some very thought provoking dialogue where you'd least expect it. Y is a pleasant getaway from the norm....enjoy the journey. -Kevin Beatty

'Y' makes you feel as though you are a part of a different world. Campion's quirky allusions and cycling through different narrators will definitely keep you on your toes. Be prepared to witness quite the unexpected confession of a guilty illusionist as you experience this journalist's obsessive desire to entertain...even at YOUR expense!

Equal parts absurdism, pop culture, magical realism, Alice in Wonderland, Wizard of Oz, and lunacy, "Y" is the rare book that wholly transports you to another place...if it is in fact another place. Campion's slanted and often cynical view of the world, along with an odd and sometimes bizarre cast of characters, makes this send-up of media and the madness of crowds as entertaining as it gets.
