Narrated in a voice that may be construed as the author's own, Guide is the story of the conflict between a novelist's fantasy life and his inability to represent it in language. Remembering the clarity he felt during an LSD trip in his teens, 'Dennis' drops acid and attempts to write a novel that will make sense of his life, his desires, his friends, and his art. The fourth volume in Cooper's five-novel cycle, Guide is his most shocking study yet of the darker side of human need and the nature of desire. It reaffirms his position as a writer whose ability to transgress is matched by his literary brilliance.
