Yesterday was Dennis Cooper’s birthday. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was celebrating by digging further into Smothered in Hugs, Dennis’s upcoming essay collection. (So far my favorite piece is definitely the one on Courtney Love.) Luckily, I was informed of this important day by harper perennial author Justin Taylor over on HTMLGiant, where he posted a pretty comprehensive list of things you too can do to celebrate Dennis’s special day.
Dennis is headed to our office later this afternoon, so stay tuned for a possible autographed Ugly Man giveaway . . .
