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.

A former Ivy League professor, Eric Jarosinski is an expert on modern German literature, culture and critical thought. His Twitter feed, @NeinQuarterly, has more than 100,000 followers in more than 100 countries. Jarosinski and his work have been featured in numerous international publications, including the New Yorker, Paris Review, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Der Spiegel, Wall Street Journal, Slate and Irish Times.

'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
