Ben’s novel Two Pumps for the Body Man examines U.S. diplomacy and the War on Terror, finding what Catch-22 knew about military logic during WWII: The enemy can’t kill us if our institutions kill us first.
His novel Patchworks examines American gun culture in a similar light.
Diplomatic assignments have taken the author to India, Washington, Mexico, Ghana, Nicaragua, and Saudi Arabia. Ben taught English at the American School of Asuncion in Paraguay; at Brooklyn College Academy; and as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Malawi.
