My Loose Thread

by Dennis Cooper
£9.99   paperback  Canongate (2003)

My Loose Thread by Dennis Cooper Larry is a teenager wrestling not only with his sexuality but with the very point of his existence. He is numb to almost all that surrounds him. As the book opens, Larry has been paid $500 by a senior to kill a fellow pupil and retrieve the boy's notebook. It seems simple enough. However, once Larry delves into the notebook complications arise. Inspired by, and in a response to, the American high school shootings of recent times, 'My Loose Thread' is an immensely powerful work that explores teenage depression, moral vacuity and the confusion of love, all set to the backdrop of a culture where violence is often the only way one can be heard.
