Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Ludicrous concepts...like the whole idea of a 'war on terrorism.' You can wage war against another country, or on a national group within your own country, but you can't wage war on an abstract noun. How do you know when you've won? When you've got it removed from the Oxford English Dictionary? See more »

Trivia:

Co-wrote an opera, with Luis Tinoco, that premiered in Lisbon, Portugal on January 12, 2008. Jones turned his collection of short stories into a libretto for the production, which he is also directing. It is about machines trying to take over the world and involves cars, motorbikes, washers, dryers, parking meters and gigantic vacuum cleaners, all singing opera on stage. See more »
