In each of his stories Michael Marcus takes us on a wild adventure through the darkest depths of addiction, sexuality, deceit, and depravity with a raw grace and eloquence that brings to mind the voices of Jim Carroll in The Basketball Diaries, Irvine Welsh in Trainspotting, Denis Johnson in Jesus’ Son, and Junot Diaz in Drown. Not for a moment do we question our narrator’s truth as he depicts larger-than-life characters who are in a constant struggle to survive. Marcus has an engaging voice as an author that is matched by his raucous humor. A powerful, fresh new voice has taken center stage on the literary scene.
