Marlowe Granados on pursuing pleasure, especially during difficult times Dear Seekers

    • Society & Culture

Marlowe Granados definitely knows how to tease, flirt and seduce, not people, but life. Growing up with a single mother and being close with her grandparents, Marlowe’s desire to play hide-and-seek with life and grab life by its tail was never lessoned, but rather, encouraged. She takes her pursuit of pleasure very seriously, especially during difficult times. Loosing her dear mom during her teen years left a significant mark in her personal life but yet she chose to not let it be the overcasting shadow. Marlowe started writing Happy Hour when she was 22, but it wasn’t until nearly 8 years later she got to taste the fruit of her labour. After many rejections over the years, Happy Hour was eventually picked up by Flying Books in Toronto in 2020 as their first in-house publication. Since then, it has been featured in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Another, and many more. The ripple effect has put Marlow and her debut novel right under the spotlight, which turned out to be quite a bizarre experience to her. To introduce Marlowe as one, two, or even three professions would be a disservice to her and to the world. She writes, she styles, she photographs, she paints, and she has directed and acted in a film. Do not guess what she is going to do next, because she might not even know either. Even if she does, we probably will never guess it.
