Marc Estrin is a writer, cellist, and activist living in Burlington, Vermont. He has by turns worked as a biologist, theater director, EMT, Unitarian minister, physician assistant, puppeteer, political activist, college professor, cellist and conductor. He grew up in a small apartment full of books, but read not one till age sixteen, when he lost his literary virginity to Franz Kafka. Propelled by Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, he sailed through college and grad schools, then leaped from graduate science into the richer, if iffier area of the arts. Vietnam and Brecht were his siren callers into political activity, and his theater work dissipated into organizing, college teaching and communal living. When these ceased to put food on the table, he reached back into a past life to study and practice medicine. With the computer came his current crop of manuscripts, published and unpublished. Marc has been investigating 9/11 since 2003, and wrote one of the earliest reviews of Griffin's The New Pearl Harbor. His local 9/11 group's website is http://vt911.org, and his own is http://web.mac.com/mestrin, where one can find synopses and reviews of his books.
