Garry Cooper

Garry Cooper, a psychotherapist and writer in Oak Park, IL, has been combining writing and therapy for years and keeps finding, losing, and finding the balance with that and with everything else in his life, which is how it works for anyone who's more than minimally sentient. "Hope at the Edge" is part of The Little Guidebook of Love and Death, which is a tasty piece of bait just dangling out there and waiting for a big, juicy agent. His essays have been published in Perigee, Bloodroot, Another Chicago Magazine, Rockhurst Review, Psychotherapy Networker, and Chicago's NPR station WBEZ.
