Issue three’s curator is Brontez Purnell. Brontez is the author of the novels, Johnny Would You Like Me if My Dick Were Bigger? and Since I Laid My Burden Down. He has been publishing, performing, and curating in the Bay Area for more than ten years as founder of cult zine Fag School, frontman for the band the Younger Lovers, and the founder and choreographer of the Brontez Purnell Dance Company. His most recent book won a 2018 Whiting Award for fiction.

When we asked Brontez to tell us a little about why he chose these particular books, he said: “So basically a lot of the writing and work I do deals with strong themes of isolation, struggle, the underdog, alongside grace and triumph. These are all books that I have read over the years that encapsulates these themes and in one way or another have influenced me and guided my voice as a writer.”
