Enter At Your Own Risk: The Dangerous Art of Dennis Cooper
I am requesting funds to aid me with supplemental publishing costs for my volume Enter At Your Own Risk: The Dangerous Art of Dennis Cooper. The Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, which will publish my volume, will cover the majority of publishing costs, but I must fund fees for the indexer, final proofreader, and copyright permissions. Given the volume’s complexity as an anthology containing both new and previously-published material, and its unusual interdisciplinarity, the creation of an index is required. Insofar as my volume discusses the relation between contemporary transgressive art and fiction, both my editor and I deem the color plates that literally and figuratively illustrate this connection essential to the volume's success. I also seek funds for copyright permissions for these images and to reprint some of the essays, which had originally appeared in museum catalogues or journals. I am both the editor of and a contributor to the volume, with an introduction, a lengthy essay, an interview with renowned film director John Waters, and a shorter essay on Cooper's newest novel.
