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."
