Book Description

Praise for Cows:

"[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

Praise for Matthew Stokoe:

"If you enjoy the sensation of your jaw dropping to the floor in a combination of stupefaction, hilarity, and shock, Cows is your book. Matthew Stokoe has written a novel like no other I've ever read--appalling, funny, and possessed of a sense of outre violence that makes Joris-Karl Huysmans read like Louisa May Alcott."
--Scott Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest

"Beautifully written and deeply gripping, this is a great read. I'm already looking forward to the next one from Matthew Stokoe."
--Michael Connelly, author of Nine Dragons, on Empty Mile by Matthew Stokoe

"Stokoe's vision of Hell is a carnivore's nightmare. A powerful and all too possibly prophetic work."
--Kathy Acker on Cows

"A stomach-churning read . . . a Wasp Factory for the '90s."

"Forget Bret Easton Ellis, Poppy Z Brite, and Dennis Cooper. That's kids stuff. If you want something truly repellent, try this."
--Gay Times

"The word is out that Cows is every bit as dark and deranged as Iain Banks' classic The Wasp Factory. It's not: it's even more so. Possibly the most visceral novel ever written."
