9780061715631: The Marbled Swarm

Literary cult hero Dennis Cooper delivers his highlyanticipated new novel. Written in a voice that is lush and intricate, TheMarbled Swarm is Dennis Cooper’s most accomplished (and most beguiling)work to date. Cooper tells the story of a man who secretly influences his sonto commit a grisly act. Justin Taylor, author of The Gospel of Anarchy,calls The Marbled Swarm “a mindbendingmasterpiece . . . vivid, slippery, ferocious, and rich with secrets. Nobody elsecould have written this novel and nothing else like it exists.” Cooper,following his collections Smothered in Hugs and Ugly Man, offershis fans the expansive novel they have been waiting for—one that will become atouchstone of outsider literature.

From the Back Cover:

The Marbled Swarm is Dennis Cooper’s most haunting work to date. In secret passageways, hidden rooms, and the troubled mind of our narrator, a mystery perpetually takes shape—and the most compelling clue to its final nature is “the marbled swarm” itself, a complex amalgam of language passed down from father to son.

Cooper ensnares the reader in a world of appearances, where the trappings of high art, old money, and haute cuisine obscure an unspeakable system of coercion and surrender. And as the narrator stalks an elusive truth, traveling from the French countryside to Paris and back again, the reader will be seduced by a voice only Dennis Cooper could create.

About the Author:

Dennis Cooper is the author of the George Miles Cycle, an interconnected sequence of five novels: Closer, Frisk, Try, Guide, and Period. His other works include My Loose Thread; The Sluts, winner of France's Prix Sade and the Lambda Literary Award; God, Jr.; Wrong; The Dream Police; and Ugly Man. He divides his time between Los Angeles and Paris.
