A native of the Park Slope section of Brooklyn, Ben Schrank has worked as a furniture mover, teacher, construction worker, and bike messenger. His engaging prose and unique insight into the male psyche are reflected in his first novel Miracle Man (William, Morrow & Co.), as well as his popular column in Seventeen magazine, "Ben's Life."
"I love the way Ben Schrank writes sentences: He flicks them like whips, so that they snap their tails with little cracks of truth. Schrank follows a logic that is surreal, surprising, and all his own." - Pagan Kennedy
