Thom Vernon

Queer. Southern. Gothic. William Faulkner meets Flannery O’Connor meets Carson McCullers. A trans-dad, a pregnant housewife, her cheating husband, his butch lover and a calf fight their sex in a mean Arkansas blizzard. Thom Vernon (performer/writer) teases his @fringenyc stint of The Drifts Live: the novel onstage with performance, readings and talk on gender and mattering.  The Drifts (Coachhouse Books) was called ‘Magnificent’ (Globe & Mail); audiences have said the performances are “Hilarious and harrowing…stricken with a dangerous poetry.”
