Dennis Cooper has been praised as a writer of "disquieting genius" by "Vanity Fair, and his sparely crafted novels have earned him an international reputation--even as his subject matter has made him a controversial figure. "God Jr, is a stunnigly accomplished new novel that marks a new phase in Cooper's noteworthy career. "God Jr, is the story of Jim, a father who survived the car crash that killed his teenage son Tommy was distant, transfixed by video games and pop culture, and a mystery to the man who raised him. Now, disbled by the accidem, yearning somehow to absolve his own guilt over the crash, Jim becomes obsessed with a mysterious building Tommy drew repetitively in a notebook before he died. As the fixation grows, Jim starts to take on elements of his son--at the expense of his job and marriage--but is he connecting with who Tommy truly was? A tender, wrenching look at guilt, grief, and the tenuous honds of family, "God Jr, is unlike anything Dennis Cooper has yet written. It is a triumphant achievement from one of our finest wirters.
