“ I was telling stories before I could write. I like to tell stories, and I like to talk to things. If you]ve read fairy tales, you know that everything can talk,from trees to chairs to tables to brooms. So I grew up thinking that, and I turned it into stories. ”
— J. California Cooper
I’ve never read this woman, but I ought to read this woman because I always see her name when I’m bored and horny at the library and looking for Dennis Cooper’s books.
***Which makes me think, I ought write about why now I only read Dennis Cooper when I’m bored and horny (or more likely, bored and stoned or drunk and horny) and how he was my god of fiction at fifteen.
