Torshi DeJarnett

Fiction | University of Akron | Class of 2020

“Torshi DeJarnett’s thesis, Jericho, is a rare work that displays the writer’s incredible ability to blend both the strange and bewildering with heartfelt domestic and community commentary. These pages scare the reader in one moment and then break our hearts in the next. In the end, they present love in all its various forms. Beyond the wonderful elements of genre fiction found here, an exploration of family, lifelong bonds and often difficult personal moments to navigate are at the heart of this rich project.”
