The Marbled Swarm

Currently I an reading a book by Dennis Cooper called The Marbled Swarm. Since the back cover proclaims that he is a hero in France (at least, an award winner) I wasn't sure what to expect.

And so far the anti-hero main character is a murdering pedophile. With a great vocabulary. This is a modern novel that has made mentions to such phenomenon as iPhones, emo kids, and cutting.

The story is told in the first-person narration style with frequent reference made to the reader. And the narrator begs us not to discount his credibility completely, at least not just yet, so I will refrain.
