Marion Winik Book Launch: Big Book of the Dead

The Ivy Bookshop

The Ivy Bookshop welcomes Marion Winik for the launch of The Big Book of the Dead.

Marion Wink is esteemed for bringing humor and wit to that most unavoidable of subjects: death. At last, Winik's critically acclaimed, cult favorites Glen Rock and Baltimore Book of the Dead have been carefully combined in their proper order, revealing more clearly than ever before the character hidden throughout these stories: Winik herself.

In The Big Book of the Dead, Winik arranges her arresting portraits of the dead chronologically, spanning "Friends of My Youth, Mostly in New Jersey 1958-1978," "The Austin Years, Including New Orleans 1977-2009," "We Were Ten Years in Pennsylvania 1999-2009," and "Love in the Time of Baltimore 2009-2018." Featuring twelve additional vignettes--including remembrances of the victims of the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting and Philip Roth--along with a brand new introduction, The Big Book of the Dead continues Winik's work as an empathic chronicler of life.

Marion Winik is the author of First Comes Love, The Baltimore Book of the Dead and eight other books. She writes the Bohemian Rhapsody column at BaltimoreFishbowl.com, and is the host of Baltimore WYPR's The Weekly Reader. She reviews books for Newsday, People, and Kirkus Reviews and teaches in the MFA program at the University of Baltimore.
