Nein. A Manifesto. is an irreverent philosophical investigation into the everyday that sounds the call to rediscover its strangeness. Inspired by the philosophical aphorisms of Nietzsche, Karl Kraus, Walter Benjamin and Theodor W. Adorno, Jarosinski's epigrammatic style reinvents short-form philosophy for a world doomed to distraction.

As tenets of a rather unorthodox manifesto, Jarosinski's four-line compositions seek to illuminate our most urgent questions - and our most ephemeral. The result is a compelling and thought-provoking translation of digital into print. Theory into praxis. And tragedy into farce.

Nein. A Manifesto. is a must-read for critical thinkers, lovers of language, bibliophiles, manics and depressives alike.

Industry Reviews
'A crisp, illusive, irreverent voice.' * New Yorker *
'The very best piece of writing I've encountered on Twitter.' * Los Angeles Times *
`This is a volume of poetry, a fact that makes you reconsider the content of Twitter as a whole. Hashtags are often used in modern humour as an abbreviated punchline, Jarosinski uses them to frame his bitter-sweet reverie on a society that has run out of time to listen...Nein. A Manifesto feels like a break for freedom.' * Salty Popcorn *
'There is no one who is producing anything comparable to these incisively self-critical prose poems.' * Los Angeles Review of Books *
`[A] profoundly clever chapbook of brainy, nihilistic, dour but playful aphorisms...In my book, Nein is a big Yes.' * NPR's Guide to 2015's Great Reads *
`Marvellous...An unusual but brilliant summer paperback.' * Age/Sydney Morning Herald *
