In his debut collection, Marston Hefner brings a unique voice and playful style to meditations on self-acceptance, the folly of youth, and how love can lead to actualization and destruction.
Through moments of family intimacy, work presentations, vacations, doomed relationships, or businessmen chasing the ephemeral, Hefner shows we are lovable and acceptable despite the shame we accumulate through the years. Sometimes it’s only through stories that we can make sense of who we are and where we are going.
“Debut author Hefner alternates from aggressiveness to vulnerable displays of emotion in this striking flash fiction exploration of romantic relationships, often with illicit or taboo dynamics.”— Publishers Weekly
“Equally charming and unhinged, the stories in Marston Hefner’s High School Romance will twist you into a bundle of giggly nerves.”— BRIAN ALLEN CARR, author of OPIOID INDIANA
MARSTON HEFNER continues the legacy Hugh Hefner left him, exploring sexual taboos, ﬁnding radical self-love in humanity’s darkest unconscious desires. He is the editor and founder of Young Magazine, a professional backgammon player, and has published work in New York Tyrant. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he prefers staying in, playing videogames, and reading over the nightlife and the glamor.
