About this title


Fiction. Gay and Lesbian Studies. The stories in DENNY SMITH use events in the life of Robert Gluck as a ground for the expansion of empathy and intellect. These events include burglary, sex, conversation, reading, humiliation, child raising, and porn. Gluck's previous books include MARGERY KEMPE and JACK THE MODERNIST, both newly available from SPD. "Flaubert says in a letter to Louise Colet that good prose should be stuffed with things. This is good prose indeed, filled with shells and duck meat and sunlight and flesh and gardening tools and sperm..."--Samuel R. Delany.

About the Author:

Robert Glück is the author of the novels Margery Kempe (Serpent's Tail Publishing, 1994), Jack the Modernist (Serpent's Tail Publishing, 1995), and three collections of prose and poetry: Reader (Lapis Press, 1989), Elements of a Coffee Service (Four Seasons Foundation, 1983), and Denny Smith (Clear Cut Press, 2004). He lives in San Francisco and teaches at San Francisco State University, where he is an editor of the online journal Narrativity.

Through his own writing and a workshop he taught at San Francisco's Small Press Traffic Literary Arts Center in the 1980s, Glück helped shape what became known as "New Narrative," a movement that included his friends and colleagues Kathy Acker, Dennis Cooper, and Dodie Bellamy. An essay by Glück about the social history of that practice can be read online. (While you're there, you should also read Kevin Killian's account of the same.) In addition, Earl Jackson's interview with Glück is online at Another Scene. Michel Foucault esteemed Glück as one of the world's greatest writers about sex. "Remember," Glück pointed out in an e-mail to Clear Cut, "impurity is Robert spelled backward."
