  ROCKSTAR,STUD,GIGOLO , 12/15/2003
Reviewer: malik
I was once roomates with this individual at Morehouse College in Atlanta,Ga and watched him go from scraps of note pad paper to short story king. He has numerous other books to follow Rockstar so be sure to read them. If you havent read Matter of Attention yet,I suggest you pick it up and read it asap. Torrence is a very eccentric writer who has and always write from his very own perspective and not bite his tongue for the reader(s). you either love him or you hate him. This individual is truly a gifted and talented writer. Peace & Love! Yo T--- keep putting out hits you know how we feel about the world.

  characters/settings bring stories to life , 12/19/2003
Reviewer: Ayanna
I find your work to be very vivid. The adjectives you use in describing your characters and settings truly bring the story to life! The author has quite a penchant for capturing a certain 'energy' in his stories. Though I was craving a bit more at the end, I was still satisfied upon completion. I think that is the trick to writing a good short story, and you seem to have that mastered.

  Passionate writing at its best! , 01/08/2004
Reviewer: Sherry A. Ballenger, Editor
RockStar, Stud, Gigolo…the essence of organic prose. Torrance Stephens’ style of writing engulfs the reader with language that is audaciously pure. Through this collection of short stories, he very cleverly paints his characters with intense, dramatic and alarming truth. The reader is captured and thrust into a fine-tuned, take-no-prisoners world that is contrary to our restricted and ordered society. These brief glimpses into the lives of the characters leave the reader captivated and satisfied, but wanting more. I look forward to more brilliant work from Torrance Stephens.

  Raw, real, dreadlocked and dangerous , 07/26/2005
Reviewer: Edward J. Carvalho
Few writers can authenticate the shift between the erudite and the sounds of the street corner like Stephens can. On the turn of a few pages in ROCKSTAR, STUD, GIGOLO, Stephens goes from footnoting "diasporic" as "throughout this whole motherf@cker" to using a quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau for the preface to "Stud", one of the eponymous stories in the collection. Raw, real, dreadlocked and dangerous, Dr. Torrance Stephens should be standard reading for anyone wanting to learn more about the often side-stepped truths in modern American society.
