Fiction. Gay and Lesbian Studies. The stories in DENNY SMITH use events in the life of Robert Gluck as a ground for the expansion of empathy and intellect. These events include burglary, sex, conversation, reading, humiliation, child raising, and porn. Gluck's previous books include MARGERY KEMPE and JACK THE MODERNIST, both newly available from SPD. "Flaubert says in a letter to Louise Colet that good prose should be stuffed with things. This is good prose indeed, filled with shells and duck meat and sunlight and flesh and gardening tools and sperm..."--Samuel R. Delany.
