On today’s show we talk to author Ben Marcus. An Associate Professor at
Columbia, Ben's work has appeared in Harper's, The New
Yorker, The Paris Review, The New York
Times, and many other publications, and he's won numerous
awards including an NEA Fellowship. Ben's also penned four
fantastic books: The Father Costume, The Age of Wire
and String, Notable American Women, and his latest,
The Flame Alphabet, which was just released last year by
Alfred A. Knopf.
Last week, Ben was nice enough to come to the Wrestling Team apartment and have a wonderfully fun discussion about shaming yourself into making art, woodworking and parental failures. It was a delight!
