The Eyes: A Novella & Stories, by Michael Harris Cohen
genres: post noir, (horror), transgressive fiction, e-novella
Michael Harris Cohen’s debut collection, The Eyes: A Novella & Stories, which includes his signature noir stories “Fingered” and “The Life and Death of John Doe,” is heartbreaking, horrifying, and utterly original. No one else writes noir quite like Cohen, with his genius turns of phrase and, as Stephen Graham Jones says, “incisions into language that [are] both intimidating and casual.”
The great Robert Coover calls Cohen “a noir master.”
“Here are people caught in the gears of the social machine and mangled by their own desire. The Eyes explores how people’s lives canÂ change with a single hairtrigger quiver, leaving them wrecked and brooding almost without their knowing anything has happened. Â Dark and smart and unapologetic, this is transgressive fiction at its uncomfortable best.” — Brian Evenson
“A cross between Burgessâ€™s A Clockwork Orange and Gibsonâ€™s Neuromancer, the prose is high-octane, a fitting vehicle for the mangled characters about to drive straight into a wall of their own violent creation.” — Rain Taxi review
