Ben Marcus Talks Speech Fever


SF Weekly interviews Ben Marcus about his new novel The Flame Alphabet, which we reviewed last week.

“I’m drawn to the ways that family members can speak to each other. It’s safer within a family, in general, to say the worst things, and get away with it. Some families do that as a matter of habit, and others are more buttoned up and don’t just let fly at each other.”
