9781871592399: Cows

"[A] phantasmagoria of extreme violence, death, sex, bestiality, self-surgery, torture, and a really, really, really bad mother-son relationship, all of which takes what the marquis de Sade did and pushes it down the road a little farther. Stokoe is an able craftsman, which makes the content all the more horrifying as he blasts through boundaries and finds increasingly twisted ways of making readers squirm."
--Publishers Weekly

"Stokoe's vision of Hell is a carnivore's nightmare. A powerful and all too possibly prophetic work."
--Kathy Acker

"Beautifully written and deeply gripping, this is a great read. I'm already looking forward to the next one from Matthew Stokoe."
--Michael Connelly, author of Nine Dragons, on Empty Mile

Mother's corpse in bits, dead dog on the roof, girlfriend in a coma, baby nailed to the wall, and a hundred tons of homicidal beef stampeding through the subway system. And Steven thought the slaughterhouse was bad . . .

Matthew Stokoe was born in England and presently divides his time between Sydney and northern California. He is the author of the groundbreaking novels High Life and Empty Mile, and he is internationally regarded as one of the most daring and innovative writers working today.

About the Author:

Matthew Stokoe: Matthew Stokoe was born in England and grew up in Australia. Since then, he has lived in a number of places in between and presently divides his time between Sydney and Northern California. He is the author of the groundbreaking novels High Life and Empty Mile, and is internationally regarded as one of the most daring and innovative writers working today.

From Publishers Weekly:

Do you like cows? Do you have even a tinge of faith in the goodness of man? If so, skip this relentlessly violent survey of some taboos you've heard of, and hopefully, a few new ones that would never occur to you. The novel follows 25-year-old Steven, who dwells in a faceless American city with his sadistic mother ("the Hagbeast"), his only friend a crippled dog named Dog. His life takes a dramatic turn when he takes a slaughterhouse job and is quickly initiated into the factory's bloody and darkly sexual brotherhood. Then he meets upstairs neighbor Lucy, who is obsessed with vivisection, and starts to believe there may be a ray of light in his otherwise nightmarish life, but what follows is a phantasmagoria of extreme violence, death, sex, bestiality, self-surgery, torture, and a really, really, really bad mother-son relationship, all of which takes what the marquis de Sade did and pushes it down the road a little farther. Stokoe is an able craftsman, which makes the content all the more horrifying as he blasts through boundaries and finds increasingly twisted ways of making readers squirm. (Feb.)
