MFA Chair and Professor Carolyn Cooke has published a new collection of short stories, "Amor and Psycho" (Knopf), which she describes as "eleven stories about sex and death, violence and desire, love and madness, set in a vast American landscape that ranges from the largest private residence in Manhattan to the lush rainforests and marijuana farms of northern California." Cooke is the author of "The Bostons," which won the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for fiction in 2002, and "Daughters of the Revolution."
Cooke appeared on "West Coast Live" on August 10 to promote the collection, which has been reviewed in the San Francisco Chronicle and the Boston Globe. She has been interviewed about the collection in Publisher's Weekly and Bustle.
