Cat Marnell

Few bloggers working today elicit such polarizing opinions about their work, or their lifestyle, as Cat Marnell. Currently working for Vice, Marnell is a lighting rod for her fans and detractors alike. Some consider her a brave and talented writer, baring her soul by revealing the most intimate and painful details of her personal life. Others consider her little more than a self-indulgent junkie, throwing her life away and driving herself toward an early grave. Without question, it has been a wild ride for Marnell over her 29 years, which is encapsulated succinctly in this New York Times profile by Sarah Hepola. What’s particularly fascinating is that no one knows how her story will turn out, perhaps least of all Cat herself.
