Fathom Questionnaire

A Few Things on Novelist Douglas Anthony Cooper

by Douglas Anthony Cooper

Hometown: Oaxaca, Mexico

Occupation: Novelist

Favorite destinations: Somewhere I can't relax. (Beaches are sunlit dirt.)

Dying to visit: the Queen.

Bizarre travel rituals: In the departure lounge, you have to sacrifice a virgin. Or the trip's doomed.

In-flight relaxation regime: Weeping.

Always in carry-on: Weasel.

Concierge or DIY? Butler.

See it all or take it easy? See "Favorite destinations."

Drive or be driven? No choice here: Pickpocket in Oaxaca got my driver's license.

Travel hero: DB Cooper

Weirdest thing seen on travels: a beach.

Best hotel amenity: windows.

I dream about my meal at night.

Everywhere I go, I check out the short silent guy in the corner. (He's the most dangerous.)

When I arrive in a new place, I learn the lay of the land by communing with the recently deceased. They can tell you the places to avoid.

I always bring home an orphan.

If I never return to a state of grace it'll be too soon because the maintenance was a bitch.

I travel for the brief respite from despair.
