Cooper tells the story of a man who secretly influences his sonto commit a grisly act. Justin Taylor, author of The Gospel of Anarchy,calls The Marbled Swarm “a mindbendingmasterpiece . . . vivid, slippery, ferocious, and rich with secrets.

Editorial Reviews

“This gorgeously warped brain-bender of a novel… reimagines the family romance (fathers-and-sons side only) in perfections of language that will startle and seduce you anew on every page. The Marbled Swarm is Dennis Cooper’s most genius-haunted achievement.”
