Look Inside

A Thing With Feathers by J. John Nordstrom

When Jonah meets Julia, you can be sure no one retains his or her sanity in A Thing with Feathers. Fictional autobiography, based on a true story, A Thing with Feathers is an intensely funny, and at the same time, deeply tragic “no-dry-eye-tear-jerker” contemporary love story/psychological thriller, set in a public law library in Northern Virginia in the 2005-6 timeframe, that masterfully merges the lives of American Romantic Poets, Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson, with the lives of its modern hero and heroine, Jonah and Julia, in a tale of passion, love, intrigue, and betrayal, never before evinced or known.

Jonah, a forty-year-old lawyer and wannabe writer, disgusted with the nonstop corruption in the legal profession in Washington, D.C., quits the practice of law, loses his girlfriend, and becomes suicidal.  Haunted by dreams and visions of Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson dancing together, he comes to believe Fate has a plan for him, however.  As finances get desperate, he takes a low-paid job as a reference librarian in a law library.  But there is one catch: he must pretend to be gay, as the twin tyrants of County Bar, Superintendent Crawford and Law Librarian Mimi Streeter, hire only submissive gay men and women financially on the edge, to control them.  Despite moral reservations, he agrees to attempt the ruse, but when the tyrants realize they have been deceived, they respond in kind to protect their criminal fiefdom.  J. John Nordstrom

Streeter and Crawford hire, on the sly, twenty-seven-year-old Julia, a much younger woman lawyer in library science school, as Jonah’s superior, with the expectation he’ll will quit in FU resentment. The plan backfires when romance ensues as the lovers tentatively test the theory that the one is a soulmate for the other, that Poe and Dickinson might have found one another, albeit in the 21st century. But Crawford and Streeter are not done with them yet… So begins the dark chess game, in which Jonah and Julia must fight to protect that which is most beautiful and dear to them, or be destroyed in the process.
