2 of 5 Not-So-Sexy Stars – Frisk by Dennis Cooper.

This is not really a novel. Maybe a novella, but not a novel. It’s not even a real story. It’s just excerpts from someone’s so-called life. Mostly normal, gay sex scenes. I mean, a little kink here and there, sure. But, for the most part, it’s boring-as-shit gay sex scenes. Big-fucking-deal.

Then, for some reason, this guy turns into a serial killer. Just because he can, apparently. I guess the Dutch just ask for it or something. He finds it just so easy to kill, so he does it, and continues to do it, in graphic detail. He picks up guys, and takes them to a deserted factory and kills and rapes them.

Or does he? This fictional character narrates these detailed killing scenes as a letter he’s writing to a friend back in the states. But, its just a fantasy, he tells his friend, after the friend actually comes to Amsterdam to visit this crazy serial killer. It wasn’t real, was it?

No, it wasn’t real. So, I just read about an 11 year old boy getting skull fucked and disemboweled with a swiss army knife (at the same time, mind you), and it wasn’t even anything I could pretend to happen. Because, it was fiction within fiction. Even the goddamn fiction was fiction! What the fuck?
