Selected Works

SMASH CUT is a love story, an elegy, and an intimate history of New York City in the 70s and 80s.
“O'Connor lives and breathes--and spits fire--in Brad Gooch's portrait.”
Vanity Fair
“A necessary chronicle of a fascinating, often overlooked, key character in modern American letters.”
Los Angeles Times
"No one else has written a book this literate and witty about the modeling world."
–Bret Easton Ellis
"Truly great. . . .a subtle and brilliantly odd book, the best of Gooch's career." (Bookforum)
"Gooch's detailed descriptions and provocative observations make The Golden Age of Promiscuity the next best thing to taking a time-machine trip to grovel in the glorious '70s gutter. " -- San Francisco Chronicle
"On so hot a subject as religion in America, Brad Gooch is as serenely cool as Tocqueville was on an equally hot subject, democracy in America; and as irresistibly readable." - Gore Vidal
"A must-read for all men - gay or straight - and the women who love them." - Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City
Unique in its approach and totally accesible in its realization, Dating the Greek Gods is an enlightened and literary self-help book that encourages readers to turn to their own inner oracle.
Short Stories
"Brad Gooch's stories offer gray grainy photographs of urban life with a roughness and directness unequalled in contemporary fiction. Brilliant." --Donald Barthelme
Brad Gooch's first book: nineteen poems. Smalltown adolescense, disco sex, S&M performance poems. And love poems.
