0 Reviews
In Rajesh Parameswaran’s short story, a tiger escapes from the zoo and narrates its adventures as it terrorizes a suburban neighbourhood. Nic Dunlop recounts his meeting with a Cambodian mass-murderer who has converted to Christianity and attempts to atone for his sins. Mark Doty ruminates on a close encounter between Walt Whitman and Bram Stoker, the grandfather of modern horror. All forms of horror – whether they begin in fright or disgust – involve an extraordinary confrontation. A surprise. In essays, reporting and short fiction, this issue of Granta will reveal the many ways we can be startled into horror.
