Second in the award-winning George Miles Cycle, "as intense a dissection of human relationships and obsession that modern literature has ever attempted" (The Guardian).

When Dennis is thirteen, he sees a series of photographs of a boy apparently unimaginably mutilated. Dennis is not shocked but stunned by their mystery and their power; their glimpse at the reality of death. Some years later, Dennis meets the boy who posed for the photographs. He did it for love.

Surrounded by images of violence, the celebrity of horror, news of disease, a wasteland of sex, Dennis flies to Europe, having discovered some clues about the photographs: "I see these criminals on the news who've killed someone methodically, and they're free. They know something amazing. You can just tell." An isolated windmill in Holland provides the perfect setting for Dennis to find out more about bodiesof which there are manyand what is inside them.

In Frisk, as in the award-winning Closer, Dennis Cooper explores the limits of our knowledge and the dividing line between the body and the spirit. Frisk is a novel about the power of fantasy and faith, about the ecstasy and horror of being human.

"A significant work of fiction. Cooper . . . wants to lead us into the wormy heart of the murderous impulse." Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours

"Destined to classic status." Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Dennis Cooper, a disturbing and transcendent artist, enters the mind of a killer and comes out with genuine revelation." Michael Silverblatt, host of Bookworm

"An electrifying study in carnage." The Sunday Times
