Louise Marburg in Conversation with Mary Volmer

discussing Marburg's collection of short stories, The Truth About Me.

"Smart and lovely stories, perceptive, compassionate, and sometimes shocking. Who are these people, so helpless in the currents that surround them? Marburg reveals their cowardice, their flaws, and their deep capacities to engage the heart.”—Roxana Robinson

In this debut of extraordinary stories, notions of love and self are turned upside

down by characters who encounter their own shortcomings, secrets, and

inventions. No matter what their station in life, the characters in these wry and

moving stories face moments in which the shock of being, and becoming,

comes from within. These stories show us how to navigate intimacy, confront

imperfection, and like so many of the characters here must, endure the private

pain that separates us from others.

 

Louise Marburg attended the Kansas City Art Institute, is a graduate of

New York University, and holds an MFA in Fiction from Columbia

University’s School of the Arts. Her stories have been published in many

fine journals and online venues. She lives in New York City and

Connecticut with her husband, the artist Charles Marburg. Visit her
