The Last Werewolf - Glen Duncan

"The morally cosy vision allows the embrace of monstrosity only as a reaction to suffering or as an act of rage against the Almighty. Vampire interviewee Louis is in despair at his brother's death when he accepts Lestat's offer. Frankenstein's creature is driven to violence by the violence done him. Even Lucifer's rebellion emerges from the agony of injured pride. The message is clear: By all means become an abomination - but only while unhinged by grief or wrath."
