 Mark Siegel

  . . .  was born in Buffalo and attended Williams College, where he won the Hubbard Hutchinson Award for writing.  He earned a Masters in creative writing at SUNY Buffalo, where John Barth hated every word he wrote and informed him the Novel was dead; Mark stopped writing fiction for 20 years. 

After a number of friends swore to him the Novel was, in fact, not dead, he again began to write fiction.  He published the true murder chronicle Rocky Point, and seventeen short stories. Echo and Narcissus was his first novel.  Mark passed away unexpectedly, November 12, 2003.
