Originally published: New York: Grove, 1982.
This is a punk, fairy-tale reimagining of Charles Dickens's original masterpiece. Pip, our narrator - familiar and unfamiliar - is transplanted to New York City in the 1980s; an orphan whose adventures incorporate desire, gender and identity, the dislocation between sex and love, art and creativity, social unrest, feminism, porn and sadism. S/he becomes a sailor, a pirate, a rebel and an outlaw.
