Apart from some teaching, he has worked for most of his life as a technical editor.A number of his plays, including Terrible Sunlight (1980), Dose Center (1990) and Six Scenes: A Barracks Brawl (1994), were performed in the heyday of off-off Broadway innovation.

"No one but Michael Brodsky could have written this. . . . For my money, the great theme of Invidicum is language itself through the medium of a novel and the adventure of reading."
