Loving Candace

By Marvin Cohen

Loving Candace brings together Marvin Cohen’s tributes to his wife, Candace Watt, both before and after her death on September 22, 2023, along with a number of broader reflections on the nature of memory and friendship, all written within the last few years of Marvin’s long writing life.

The Candace tributes may be considered as one work: the earlier pieces rejoicing in their companionship, the later pieces often painfully raw and reiterative, as Marvin struggles to express his loss.

Edited by Colin Myers.


Marvin Cohen is the author of numerous novels, plays, and collections of short pieces, including The Self-Devoted Friend, Others, Including Morstive Sternbump, and Baseball as Metaphysics. He lives in New York City.
