Nobody else could have written this novel and nothing else like it exists." —Justin Taylor, author of The Gospel of Anarchy and Everything Here is the Best Thing EverDennis Cooper is the author of the George Miles Cycle, an interconnected sequence of five novels: Closer, Frisk, Try, Guide, and Period.
