Like Cooper’s previous novel (A Year of Rhymes, 1993) and memoir (Truth Serum, 1996), his debut collection of 11 stories, most first seen in literary quarterlies, focuses on gay men in southern California. Night Sky sets the tone. As the narrator helps his ex-wife spy on her second ex-husband, Cooper doesn’t quite succeed in avoiding every easy opportunity for bitchy humor, but his real interest is in the emotional connection, deeper than friendship though no longer sexual, that binds this gay man and straight woman. Cooper also has a fondness for placing his characters in oddball situations. In "Hunters and Gatherers," the protagonist finds himself at a dinner party thrown by a Mormon couple. The wife had wanted to meet some of her supposedly straight husband's gay friends, but the party ends in disaster; ultimately the wife can't stand to be around gays because she says she can't stop thinking about what they do in bed: "That's the problem with homosexuals," she says.
