Presentation & Booksigning with Ben Marcus: The Flame Alphabet

Colfax Avenue: Ben Marcus is the author of Notable American Women and The Age of Wire and String. His stories have appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s, The Paris Review, Tin House, and elsewhere. The recipient of three Pushcart Prizes, a Whiting Writers Award, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, and an award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, he is a Professor of Creative Writing at Columbia University. Now Marcus, one of the most innovative and important writers of his generation, brings us a dark new novel, The Flame Alphabet, a nightmarish vision, that is both completely alien and frighteningly more about the plot here.
