Meet our readers: Alex DiFrancesco


Alex DiFrancesco
Alex DiFrancesco is a writer of fiction and literary nonfiction, an occasional storyteller, a queer activist, and a baker. Their debut novel, The Devils That Have Come to Stay, is a radical Acid Western that completely flips the American Western on its head. A long time resident of Queens, DiFrancesco now lives in Brooklyn with their cat, Sylvia Rivera-Katz. They wrote on a manual typewriter until they hit thirty and carpal-tunnel syndrome became a reality. They are currently at work on their second novel, a dystopian sci-fi that takes place in a future New York City.
