Frisk pdf

Cooper says, “I present the actual act of evil so it’s visible and give it a bunch of facets so that you can actually look at it and experience it. You’re seduced into dealing with it. … So with Frisk, whatever pleasure you got out of making a picture in your mind based on … those people being murdered, you take responsibility for it.” In unsparingly confessional mode, Cooper leads the reader into a confrontation with what they get out of fantasized scenes of violence. A brilliant novel — not a genre horror work but, rather, a critique of the power of genre.
