Mark Chiusano’s debut story collection, Marine Park, explores family, love, and the dramas of coming of age in a tight-knit community at the edge of the city--on the water, out of the way. “Subtle, tender, [and] emotionally powerful” (Said Sayrafiezadeh), Marine Park crafts a portrait of American life that resonates well beyond its Brooklyn backdrop. Chiusano will be joined by Dave Daley, editor-in-chief of Salon.com.Mark Chiusano is a graduate of Harvard University, where he was the recipient of a Hoopes Prize for outstanding undergraduate fiction. His stories have appeared in Guernica, Narrative, Harvard Review, and online at Tin House and The Paris Review Daily. He was born and raised in Brooklyn.
