Akashic Books is proud to present a preview of the forthcoming
reissue of Matthew Stokoe's debut novel, COWS,
selected by Dennis Cooper for his Little House on the Bowery series.
"[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
