Judyth Piazza chats with Djelloul Marbrook, Author of Saraceno

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)


Del Marbrook was born in Algiers to an American painter and a Bedouin father. He grew up in New York City, never having known his father. On the subject of education, at least, he agrees with Jamaica Kincaid: before the age of twenty-one, aspiring writers should read only dead Englishmen (and women). He has worked as a soda jerk, newspaper hawker, messenger, and theatre and nightclub concessionaire in Manhattan, and as a merchant seaman and Navy boatswain.

His newspaper reporting and editing career includes `The Providence Journal`, `The Baltimore Sun`, `The Winston-Salem Journal`, and the late `Washington Star`. He and his wife Marilyn lived on a sailboat for eleven years, coming ashore in 1989. is Del`s first work for Online Originals. You can read about his other writing at.
