Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Acker may be the true mother of Brat Pack writers like Brett Easton Ellis, but there isn’t disgust in her work ... Transgression is never disgust—it is a way of surviving.”—Jeanette Winterson

“From the fringes, an outsider, Kathy Acker penetrated the heart of American culture with a superb and wicked intellectual force we had not seen before.”—Sapphire

“Scarified sensibility, subversive intellect, and predatory wit make her a writer like no other I know.”—New York Times Book Review
