I Wished Publisher's summary

"I started writing books about and for my friend George Miles because whenever I would speak about him honestly, like I am doing now, I felt a complicated agony beneath my words that talking openly can't handle."

For most of his life, Dennis Cooper believed the person he had loved the most and would always love above all others was George Miles. In his first novel in 10 years, Dennis Cooper writes about George Miles, love, loss, addiction, suicide, and how fiction can capture these things, and how it fails to capture them. Candid and powerful, I Wished is a radical work of shifting forms. It includes appearances by Santa Claus, land artist James Turrell, sentient prairie dogs, John Wayne Gacy, Nick Drake, and George, the muse for Cooper's acclaimed novels Closer, Frisk, Try, Guide, and Period, collectively known as "The George Miles Cycle". In revisiting the inspiration for the Cycle, Dennis has written a masterwork: the most raw, personal, and haunted book of his career.
