Galley Giveaway: Celebrated Author Dennis Coopers' Latest Novel: THE MARBLED SWARM

THE MARBLED SWARM by Dennis CooperWith the latest installment of our “Galley Giveaway” series, we are very excited to offer advanced reading copies of the long-anticipated new novel from literary cult hero Dennis Cooper, The Marbled Swarm. A master of mood and foreboding, Cooper tells the story of a son’s unwitting devotion to a possibly insane father.


A father raises a son in secret, isolating him from the outside world, and teaches him a secret language that only the two of them will know. Their coded tongue, called “the marbled swarm,” is part of a mystery of fatherhood, independence, and redemption that unfolds over the course of a dark and mesmerizing narrative—as the boy encounters hidden pathways, unsolved deaths, and a questionable history of how his father became the man he is.


The Marbled Swarm is a mindbending masterpiece from one of my all-time favorite writers. It is vivid, slippery, ferocious, and rich with secrets. Nobody else could have written this novel and nothing else like it exists.”—Justin Taylor, author of The Gospel of Anarchy
