Marine Park

A collection of stories by


"Startling and affecting...impeccable."
Amy Hempel

. Recipient of a 2015 PEN/Hemingway Award Honorable Mention .

"Chiusano . . . [has] formidable talents. It will be worth watching what he does when he leaves the neighborhood." - John Williams, The New York Times

An astute, lively, and heartfelt debut story collection by an exciting new voice in contemporary fiction

Marine Park - in the far reaches of Brooklyn, train-less and tourist-free - finds its literary chronicler in Mark Chiusano. Chiusano's dazzling stories delve into family, boyhood, sports, drugs, love, and all the weird quirks of growing up in a tight-knit community on the edge of the city. In the tradition of Junot Diaz's Drown, Stuart Dybek's The Coast of Chicago, and Russell Banks's Trailerpark, this is a poignant and piercing collection - announcing the arrival of a distinct new voice in American fiction.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
