Dennis Cooper: The Marbled Swarm
Listen to/Watch entire show:
The Marbled Swarm (Harper Perennial)
This complex and visionary novel is the first that's not set in Los Angeles. This time it's Paris in a haunted house, and in the sophisticated kitchen of an aristocratic cannibal tribe. Dennis Cooper speaks about the inarticulate emotions that underlie the razzle-dazzle of secret corridors, lush language, brutality and desire.
