Comfort & Critique documents Peter Sotos’ pornographic and intellectual fixations. The intensely personal nature of his work, due in part to his from-the-gut writing technique, feels like an intimate gesture toward the reader. His writing has always been a beacon to his private obsessions, siphoned through a pointed yet fragmented rant. But what sets this book apart from his earlier work is the feeling it leaves that Sotos might be America’s most dangerous cultural critic. He has never sounded so clear and, at the same time, so disturbing. Sarah Payne, the twelve-year old murder victim, and Sarah Payne, the victim’s mother, are Sotos’ anchor in Comfort & Critique.

I interviewed Peter Sotos this past summer. Peter Sotos: I’ve heard how wrong I am for as long as I’ve been alive, it seems. You can purchase Comfort & Critique from Void Books. Since then, we’ve kept in touch, most often about music. There’s the temptation to say something nice about the notorious author, but instead of selling you on Peter the person (admittedly a great guy to get drunk with while discussing the finer points of Shellac), why not read his responses in the following interview and formulate your own opinion. So I have to weigh a possible audience’s possible arguments against mine all the time.

When compared to all of the books that precede it, it is apparent that this is Sotos' greatest work. Though you probably need to read one or two of those earlier books to realize the magnitude of the shift. The structure here is intricately crafted, taking the reader down a maelstrom that slowly unfolds in reverse detailing the tragic murder of Sarah Payne. Sotos' articulates the messy divide between himself and his subject, which is always, rightfully, the victim. Distinctions are made between the narrator who talks about these children, the men who have hurt them, and the parents who mourn them in such a questionably public manner.

Peter Sotos recounts the abduction and murder of 8-year-old Sarah Payne, a crime that stunned England and spawned an aftermath of reactionary outcry and violent protest. Supplemented by over 100 photos, this volume is possibly Sotos’ most revealing and multi-faceted work to date. Category: Books Tag: Peter Sotos. Additional information.

In this unsettling new book, cult author Peter Sotos recounts the abduction and murder of 8-year-old Sarah Payne, a crime that stunned England and spawned an aftermath of reactionary outcry and violent protest. Through news bites and tabloid clippings reassembled in reverse chronology, Sotos examines the media apotheosis of Payne's parents in the wake of her disappearance, scrutinizes the hidden motives of reporters and citizens driven to hysterical excess by grief, vengeance, and opportunism, and illumines the insatiable lusts that govern the actions of sexual predators. Punctuated by philosophical overtures and self-deprecating quips, Comfort and Critique is a brutal meditation on fantasy and desire set against a backdrop of media banter and illicit back room activity in bars and underground sex clubs. Supplemented by over 100 photos, this volume is possibly Sotos' most revealing and multi-faceted work yet.
