THE SUBJECT BEN
Start the year with a literary orgasm. Two of America's best contemporary novelists, Ben Marcus and Sam Lipsyte, who also happen to be colleagues and close friends, will be holding the floor at McNally Jackson discussing Marcus’s new collection of short stories, Leaving the Sea. Marcus has, for years, been one of experimental fiction’s greatest champions, and, while he continues to write bizarre and avant-garde tales, he has also, of late, been dabbling (with tremendous results) with more traditional forms. Expect high jinks, laughter, and a slew of odd profundities.
