Editorial Reviews

Carolyn See
"This is an inquiry into the possibilities of life for a 'passionate' woman....Great Expectations in its boisterousness and strong language in sense of the injustice of it all is closely related to Henry Miller." - Los Angeles Times

What People are saying about this

William Boros
"Acker is a post-modern Collette with echoes of Cleland's Fanny Hill."
Robert Creeley
"The novel's remarkable investment of hackmeat originals makes a prose of shimmering precision. Words, ideas, and of the concepts that engender them come together in a singularly fulfilling tour de force of one woman's life, like they say, in the many place where imagination has heretofore proposed it to be."
