From Ben Marcus, one of the most innovative and vital writers of his generation, comes an extraordinary collection of stories that showcases his gifts — and his range — as never before. 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 (Knopf) is the work of an utterly unique writer at the height of his powers.
