“Mohr’s prose roams with chimerical liquidity.”—Boston’s Weekly Dig

“Mohr uses punchy, tightly wound prose to pull readers into a nightmarish landscape, but he never loses the heart of his story; it’s as touching as it is shocking.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review for Some Things That Meant the World to Me

Termite Parade is the second novel from San Francisco Chronicle best-selling author Joshua Mohr. It is a mature look at the honest side of human interaction.

Derek drops his black-out drunk and verbally abusive girlfriend Mired down a flight of stairs in their apartment building on purpose, and then calls his estranged twin brother Frank to help clean up the mess.

Mired thinks she fell and blames herself; Frank knows better; Derek, ravaged with guilt, plays along before ditching town altogether.

Termite Parade examines how Derek, Mired, and Frank cope with the incident, and, more deeply, the concepts of how we love one another; whether individuals are capable of change or whether we simply are who we are; and how capable we are, despite being an extremely intelligent and evolved species, of being savage animals.

Joshua Mohr is the author of Some Things That Meant the World to Me, is a regular contributor to TheRumpus.net, and teaches writing in San Francisco.
