Product Details

About the Author

Derek McCormack is the author of Grab Bag (Akashic) and The Haunted Hillbilly (Soft Skull), which was named a 'best book of the year' by both the Village Voice and The Globe and Mail, and a Lambda Literary Award finalist. He writes fashion and arts articles for the National Post. He lives in Toronto. Dennis Cooper is the author of 'The George Miles Cycle, ' an interconnected sequence of five novels published in the US by Grove Press and translated into fourteen languages. His most recent novel is God, Jr. (Grove, 2005). He lives in Los Angeles.


"The latest in Dennis Cooper's Little House on the Bowery series, [Derek] McCormack's slender little send-up is funny and frenetic as all get out. Puns ('Skin smokes. Seared hair. Seared skin. Seared seersucker. Stinks. Chaney No. 5') and one-liners ('She makes herself into a mist. Vampires, like perfumes, vaporize') abound. The only thing the characters don't do is break out in song or yodel...It all makes sense in a lost-in-the-fun-house-on-laughing-gas kind of way [and] it's never boring. Like a carny barker, McCormack promises thrills and chills, and The Show That Smells delivers grotesqueries galore."--Los Angeles Times
