What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Aliens & Anorexia is a tantalizing, messy, wildly associative and often brilliant book that leaps effortlessly between autobiography, art criticism, philosophy and fiction.

[...] There are more ideas on every page of Aliens & Anorexia than in most books published in the last year. It is an exciting and courageous work." Ben Ehrenreich, L.A. Weekly, (19 January2001)
