The Last Ache

The Last Ache

Aaron Botwick and Josh Meadow

Aaron Botwick was born in San Francisco, California, but moved to Knockemstiff, Ohio after his father, a clown in the Pickle Family Circus, left the business following the company’s merge with Circus Center. He studies English and Astronomy at Oberlin College and spends most summers interning at a local paper factory.

Joshua Meadow was born in Southern Kenya and holds dual citizenship with the United States. He moved to Berkeley, California at the age of eight and, inspired by its progressive politics, decided to study Comparative Literature and Feminist Theory at Oberlin College.

Oberlin College:
In a film noir modernization of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart,” Ezra is driven to madness by his roommate’s incessant knuckle cracking.
