The Residue Years tell the story of a young man and his mother caught in a changing world, between dwindling choices and hope for something better. Jackson writes with a cadence that rolls off the tongue. His storytelling is vivid and complex, textured and honest. He tells this story in the way only he can.

Jackson writes from the heart, drawing the reader in, offering a window into a larger, broader truth. It offers an opportunity to expand our world view. It isn't always comfortable, but change rarely is.
