Michael Harris Cohen's debut collection, The Eyes: A Novella & Stories, 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 can change with a single hairtrigger quiver, leaving them wrecked and brooding almost without their knowing anything has happened. Dark and smart and unapologetic, this is transgressive fiction at its uncomfortable best." - Brian Evenson.
