Editorial Reviews

C. Carr
"Acker deconstructs gender in this book as she never has before." -- The Voice Literary Supplement
David Ballard
"Cathy Acker's trance-like writing style peels away the layers of reality....Acker is an expert at evoking the shadowry realm of belief and emmersion where the rules of cause and effect do not necessarily apply." -- The San Francisco Chronicle
Tom LeClaire
"Scarified sensibility, subversive intellect, and preditory wit make her a writer like no other I know." The New York Times Book Review

This is Acker's best novel. Her repudiation of linear narrative is in peak form in Don Quixote.
