Put together in secrecy during late 1980 until early 1982 GONE is a tour de force into Dennis Cooper’s most private obsessions and forbidden fantasies.
We’ve never seen him exposed like this before, without leaning on (or hiding behind) his remarkable craft. Cooper mingles picture- and text collages, prose and poetry with news reports and pornography. The tabloid killings of William Bonin, Dean Corll and John Wayne Gacy – the victims catalogued repeatedly like Warholian icons – bleeds into late 70s/early 80s teen stars and anonymous, forgotten porn actors in a crude, yet rigours composed collage of Sadeian proportions. This is the template of the inner drives that later would spawn the masterpiece The George Miles Cycle.

For those interested, Infinity Land Press did a second run. Have been eyeing this for ages, a friend of mine says it's fantastic! Any other opinions?
