The AuctionMike Marks
The Auction recounts what could have been, how close my family might have come to bountiful life changes in the version of Akron, Ohio which existed on August 7, 1981.
Michael M. Marks is a voice from all sides of the Midwest. Starting at the bottom edge in Cincinnati and raised in the heart of the Midwest in suburban Chicago, he became the first student to receive a Creative Writing degree on the Western edge, at Kansas State University. He managed retail stores in the North, in Michigan, now a longtime resident of Akron, Ohio, on the Eastern border of the Midwest, with a patient wife and lots of grown children, each day brings new questions of what is and what is not.
