Dennis Cooper, Keith Mayerson Horror Hospital Unplugged
New York, NY: Juno Books. 1996
Synopsis: In Horror Hospital Unplugged, well-known cutting-edge author Dennis Cooper and notorious artist Keith Mayerson collaborate to bring us the dark but hilarious story of Trevor Machine: a twenty-something, gay-but-sexually-confused singer for an L.A. indie band on its way to fame and fortune. Set in comic book format, Mayerson employs distinctly different graphic styles, adding to the chaotic pace of the book. The narrative chronicles Trevor’s struggles with love, sex, the music industry, and a spiritual visitation from the ghost of River Phoenix. Overflowing with biting commentary on trendy art, music and film communities, the drawings and text are as unruly and raw as the young punk sexuality they describe.
