Snowflake, AZ

Marcus’ most recent book spans seven years of triumphs and tragedies, illness and health. Snowflake, AZ  is about the resilience of love, and our planet in crisis. And a goat called Socrates, who’s smarter than he looks…

“Turns the post-apocalypse genre on its head.”

“When the blows arrive, they land with a visceral punch.”

“An ominous, relevant, and uniquely compelling read.”

– Starred review, Kirkus

“this raw, deeply philosophical tale leaves readers with a timely, sobering message.”

– Starred review, Publisher’s Weekly
