“Marcus’s stories are nothing if not intense.  They are opaque, elliptical.  They go on, Beckett-like.  Each finds its own form on its own terms.  He’s always looking for a new way to tell an old story.  As he has written elsewhere, stories ‘seek personal residence within a reader.’  They should take over the reader’s imagination, as these do.”-—Shelf Awareness
