About the Author
GABRIEL CHOLETTE (@gab.cho) scours the New York, Berlin, and Montreal underground scenes for literary material, which he writes on using the codes of Instagram. He is also finishing a thesis on the commercial imagination in medieval French literature.
Montreal artist JACOB PYNE (@cumpug) explores themes of sexual identity, relationships, and anonymous sex from a queer perspective. His intimate and erotically charged scenes are inspired by his personal experiences and desires.
Terse and vivid.-- "Boston Arts Fuse"
An ode to queer nightlife ... Within the evocative prose, there is no shame or fear of judgment ... Cholette succeeds in reflecting the facets of queer nightlife through a pensive lens, allowing readers to dissect its subjects and figures on their own terms.-- "INTO more"
The intimacy of being granted nearly full access to someone else's life, during perhaps some of their most private moments, is captivating and engrossing, and makes Scenes from the Underground difficult to put down.-- "Montreal Review of Books"
Pyne's erotic illustrations, depicting unabashed nudity, add to the book's appeal and help center us further into the narrative that Cholette is telling. ... The stories in Scenes from the Underground give off a sense of endless exploration. ... These blissful moments morph into faceless blurs and snippets of recollection. Affection is so fleeting, and Cholette finds this out the hard way. There is a looming quietness in the juxtaposition to all the chaos.-- "White Wall Review"
