Michael Marcus currently lives in the erstwhile barrio of Glassel Park, along with his wonderful wife and two aging cats. He was born in Freeport, Long Island, or as he likes to call it, Cirrhosis by the Sea. His Irish Catholic mother comes from Far Rockaway, New York—The Irish Riviera.
His Romanian Jewish father hails from The Bronx. Growing up, he never felt he fit in anywhere, and has tried his hand at many jobs—legal, and not so much. Reading, writing, and performing saw him through the literal trauma and hell he grew up in. This collection of stories reflects those memories. There is more to come.
