Bio:

Debut author Reuben “Tihi” Hayslett confronts identity politics, racism and homophobia in his debut short story collection “Dark Corners,” (89 pages) which has been selected by Kirkus Reviews as best book of the year (2019). Reuben, himself Multiracial, fundamentally centers “Dark Corners” on QPOC (queer people of color) as protagonists in ways often not seen in mainstream media, producing a book that is “intersectional” fiction, meaning politics, political identity, race, and sexual orientation are interwoven within each story.
