Benjamin Weissman, with editor Dennis Cooper
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Dennis Cooper is editing a new-fiction series for Akashic Books. Benjamin Weissman's Headless (Little House on the Bowery/Akashic Books) is one of the first of the new releases. Together, writer and editor discuss the poles of Weissman's work -- from madness to sadness, from the function of family, to family dysfunction.
