Caleb Wilson asked Ben Marcus:

I feel I have noticed a lot of birds in your fiction. Except they don't really seem to be real birds. Do you attach any particular thematic weight to birds, whether real or unreal?

Ben Marcus Are any birds real, if they are in fiction? I'm not sure why my birds would seem less real than some other fiction writer's birds. How does one add reality to imaginary birds? I'd like to know.
