Description
 
Dennis Cooper (au). Written in prose that challenges both the form & content of the novel, & possessed with a narrative of intense power, “Guide’s”  mesmerizing tone pushes writing on sex, death, & love to a new height. This is the story of the conflict between a novelist’s fantasy life & his inability to represent it in language. Remembering the clarity & omnipotence he felt during an LSD trip in his teens, “Dennis” drops acid & attempts to write a novel that will make sense of his life, his desires, his friends, & his art, & distinguish what is real from the distortions created by his overactive imagination. The novel weaves together Dennis’s story with a number of characters. A deep study of the darker side of human need & the terrifying nature of desire.
