Main description:

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

Marine Park isn’t exactly New York City, or even Brooklyn. Bounded by Gerritsen Avenue, Flatbush Avenue, Kings Highway, and the salt marshes past Avenue U, it’s a place where city residents rarely set foot. Even if they wanted to, they’d need to take the subway and a bus, and walk, far beyond the more familiar neighborhoods of Park Slope, Prospect Heights, Flatbush, or Sunset Park.

In twenty-three-year-old Mark Chiusano, Marine Park finds its literary chronicler. The stories in this fierce and deeply felt new collection follow Lorris and his older brother Jamison as they emerge, gradually, into the no-man’s-land of adolescence. Chiusano’s dazzling stories delve into family, boyhood, athletics, drugs, love, and all the weird quirks of growing up in a tight-knit community on the edge of the city. Reminiscent of Junot Díaz’s Drown, Stuart Dybek’s The Coast of Chicago, and Russell Banks’s Trailerpark, this brilliant collection announces the arrival of a distinct new voice in American fiction—clean, beautiful, and piercing.

Review quote:

“In clean, honed prose, Mark Chiusano gives us an intimate tour of a neighborhood of Brooklyn not offered up in fiction before.  His explorations of loyalty within a family, and the breach of it, are startling and affecting—his sense of story is impeccable.  Marine Park is a debut worth a reader’s close attention.” —Amy Hempel

“The stories in Marine Park are funny and touching and elliptical, and all about coming of age at the edge of the city and on the margins of the good life, with some moving forward and others left behind. Mark Chiusano is wonderful on how our minds can be elsewhere even when we wish to be wholly present, and on the oblique ways in which we therefore often have to signal our indispensability to one another.” —Jim Shepard

“In Marine Park, Mark Chiusano shines a light on lives that are too often left in the dark.  He shows us, with humor and deep-hearted compassion, the complexities of growing up and growing old in the blue collar shadows, and he gives us, story after story, the chance to see ourselves in his longing, hopeful characters. This is a wise and affecting collection, and it marks the arrival of a voice we’ve not heard until now, one that will carry through the streets and alleys of contemporary literature for years to come.” —Bret Anthony Johnston
