LOCAL HUMAN MOTHER RELEASES ANTHOLOGY THAT EXPLORES OUR HILARIOUS ATTEMPTS TO CONTROL THE CHAOS IN OUR LIVES.
11 STORIES, 11 DOSES OF REALITY, 11 QUIRKY PERSPECTIVES, + POEMS ALL STRUNG TOGETHER TO REVEAL THE GLITCHES THAT CURB OUR FUTURE PLANS AND MAKE US SECOND GUESS THE REALITY WE’VE BEEN SO HASTILY SHOVED INTO.
CITY, STATE, PROVINCE, DATE— Donna Thompson, local mother, retired teacher, and full-time author, has released her first anthology, titled “The Glitch Factory: Perfectly Human in an Imperfect World.” Through a compilation of short stories written with an elegant prose, Thompson defines the chaos that surrounds our daily lives by revealing the quirks and nuances that always seem to catch us off-guard. Humans are a stubborn species—we simply refuse to accept that our reality is not working in league with us. We make future plans, and then are surprised when something unexpected comes up and changes everything.
Thompson is also a member of the Association of Independent Authors, Canadian Authors Association and Writers of Durham where she often shares her works with the public and collaborates with other authors from around the world. In addition, she is the creator of the blog/website, “The Glitch Factory,” where she shares insightful observations on what it means to be stringently human in such a vibrant, chaotic world filled with unpredictability.

The Glitch Factory – Perfectly Human in an Imperfect World by Donna Thompson is a collection of short stories, flash fiction, and poetry that revolves around an interesting theme of what is perfectly human in an imperfect world. The book speaks about the glitches in our lives, how environmental factors influence our mood and a riot of our emotions: laughter, love, satire etc. The author has put them forth to the reader in a very engaging manner.
I found the style of presentation very avant-garde. From the writing style to the theme and the pictures; the book is really unique. The language is exquisite. The book is not the run-of-the-mill type that you get to read every other day and the style is innovative. The author’s love for writing and language is evident from the way the concept has been shared with the reader. The author also speaks about the use of forms in sending text messages nowadays. The pictures are classy and very elegantly fitted into the book. The author has put a lot of soul into the book.
The poetry collection in the book is beautiful. It borders mostly on the prose side with some beautiful imagery and wonderful pictures to go with the words. All three collections are eclectic and the book is a real treat for the reader. I haven’t read a book so creative, with such exquisite use of language for a while now.
I loved it. The language, the presentation, and the thoughts – they are all very classy, elegant and unique.
