Welcome to The Fugitive World by me, Ben Mauk (left). I’m a freelance writer and journalist based in Berlin. My web site is here. I’m writing a book about fugitive and non-state spaces for Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

In this space I write informally about my published work; my book-in-progress; thoughts I’m working through; and things I like.

This is also a sandbox where I try stuff out before (or instead of) more formal publication. I’d love to hear your thoughts, criticisms, and reading recommendations.
