Marc Dulman has gone into permanent exile now, and we miss him!Â He was a fineÂ writer –Â of poetry, plays,Â prose fiction — and also a dedicated teacher with a long history at CCSF.Â A man who was constantly attuned to his own muse, who was confident that his writing was on par with the writers of the ages and who was likely quite correct in that assessment.Â We’re glad to have known him, and to have heard him read his own work — whether it was the poems collected in the volume called House Wine, the play called Ten Franc, or other work that he polished until it shone deep and bright.
Marc’sÂ colleagues and friendsÂ will gather May 5th, Sunday, at 2 pm to read some of his work — particularly the novel which was on the verge of publication when he passed away suddenly a few months ago.Â Soul on the Run has indeed come out from Montezuma Publishing–a moving evocation of Dante Alighieri’s years of exile from Florence and his composition of the masterwork which we have known through the ages.Â Reading Soul on the Run, you feel thatÂ you’re reading a bit of Marc’s own story as he wandered in his own internal intellectual exile, searching forÂ a placeÂ and a life among the works of literature that he considered his home.

The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
