Afternoon Bites: Blake Butler on Dennis Cooper, John Cage, Avid Bookshop, and more

“From the very first sentence, we still find the familiar wicked slant of Cooper’s perennial knack for penetrative dialogue (in more than one sense, and  with a degree of simultaneous awe and terror that I believe is unmatched in fiction), though the trajectory of it has been bent again.” Blake Butler reviews Dennis Cooper’s new novel The Marbled Swarm. (We’ll be hosting Cooper in conversation with Brandon Stosuy in two weeks.)

  • At Tin House’s blog: the first installment of Rob Spillman’s culture diary, with appearances from Arctic Monkeys, Terese Svoboda, Boris, Justin Vivien Bond, Zadie Smith, and more.
