In the near future, Oakland is haunted by natural disaster and political collapse. When k realizes that she has infected her girlfriend, bea, with a disease, she loses herself in a masochistic quest for atonement, leaving bea to contend with her fears about an increasingly precarious world by herself. Literary and adventurous, lyrical yet anchored, Davey Davis' work explores the meanings of responsibility, romantic love, and queer resistance in a late-capitalist hellscape where futurity is always in question. Davey Davis writes about culture, sexuality, technology, and genderqueer embodiment. Occasionally, they also write fiction. Their short story "Difficult Women" received Honorable Mention for Glimmer Train’s 2014 Short Story Award for New Writers. They live in Berkeley, California.
