Ben Marcus

Marcus is the author of Leaving the Sea. In these piercing, brilliantly observed investigations into human vulnerability and failure, it is often the most absurd and alien predicaments that capture the deepest truths. Surreal and tender, terrifying and life-affirming, Leaving the Sea is the work of an utterly unique writer at the height of his powers.

Ben Marcus is the author of Notable American Women and The Age of Wire and String. His work has appeared in Grand Street, Harper’s, McSweeney’s, Conjunctions, and elsewhere. The recipient of three Pushcart Prizes, a Whiting Fellowship, a Guggenheim, and a National Endowment for the Arts grant, he is a professor at Columbia University and lives in New York City.
