Jarrod Campbell’s bold debut collection of short fiction traverses and examines the spaces and purposes assumed by the gay male, not least his own. The Reason I’m Here departs from standard expectations of queer behavior to subvert these limited perceptions in favor of honest explorations of desire, amnesia, voyeurism, betrayal, physicality, grief, faith, and uncertainty. Gritty, dreamlike, and reminiscent of Hitchcock and Cortázar, these poignant stories walk on the wild side of human nature.
