Product Details

Praise

Feminist writer and filmmaker Chris Kraus’ novel Torpor, originally published in 2006, is not the festival of negativity we deserved but the festival of negativity we needed in those—and these—artificially untroubled times. As fresh today as it was when it first came out, Torpor joins Twitter personalities like Nein Quarterly and So Sad Today to resist the cult of relentless positivity, cultivating a much-needed counter-aesthetics of despair.—Becca Rothfeld, Slate
