Joshua Fausty

Joshua Fausty focuses on DeSalvo’s “essayistic memoir” as a type of writing that articulates a “literary process of subjective becoming that does not imply certainty about a final destination or even a starting point.” Fausty argues that remembering and telling, undertaken in writing that performs “transformative nextness,” serves as a vehicle for self and social transformation.
