We’ve never lived in Culver’s territory and it still doesn’t

feel like we do. I mean, it’s at 33rd and Iowa and our place

Dualities

Jason Phoebe Rusch

Jason Phoebe Rusch is a queer writer from the Chicago suburbs. His full-length debut Dualities explores gender and patriarchy from the perspective of a man who was socialized and is currently still read as a woman. He is interested in complication and nuance and messy human failing, his own and that of others.
