Internationally acclaimed writer Dennis Cooper makes a rare appearance to talk with Tony O’Neill (former band member with the Brian Jones Massacre) about his new short story collection that plumbs veins of dark humor amid the sex and gore his fans have come to expect.
Dennis Cooper is the author of the George Miles Cycle, an interconnected sequence of five novels that includes Closer, Frisk, Try, Guide, and Period. His post-George Miles Cycle novels include My Loose Thread, The Sluts, which won France's Prix Sade and the 2005 Lambda Literary Award for Best Men's Fiction, and his most recent work, the highly acclaimed God, Jr. He divides his time between Los Angeles and Paris.
