Hard to Find - Contact Store for Availability


In this vital collection of new and selected work, Jack Marshall never lets readers forget that they are meat-on-the-bone, organic beings incomplete in nature, often rattled by the tricky fortune of possessing free will and consciousness. With voice steady and language sublime, Marshall imparts a studied view of being alive and the possibilities that abound before, during, and after our earthly tryst as -psyche meeting flesh.

Jack Marshall was born in 1936 to Arabic-Jewish parents, and often mines these clashing cultures in his work. His critically acclaimed books include Sesame, a PEN West Literary winner and National Book Critics Circle finalist. He lives in San Francisco, California.
