Thanks for the info. Like the author of the quote, I also found ties to Naked Lunch in Cooper, particularly in the way it linked violence and homosexual sex. A long time ago, I started Genet's Our Lady of the Flowers a couple of times, but never got very far. I should probably try it again.

I always found Gary Indiana's columns in places like Interview (and Art Forum, I think) a bit glib. Do his novels show more depth?

As for "is it a true crime book or a novel," I'm about to, finally, read Executioner's Song (inspired by, of all things, Matthew Barney's arty-farty film Cremaster 2). I figure that ought to keep my lips moving for a long, long time.
