Originally published: Los Angeles: Semiotext(e), 2017.
Rich girl, street punk, lost girl and icon - scholar, stripper, victim and media-whore. The late Kathy Acker's legend and writings are wrapped in mythologies, created mostly by Acker herself. The media storm that surrounded Kathy Acker's books was unprecedented; her books were banned in several countries and condemned by the mainstream media, but eventually the controversy, and attention, faded away. 20 years after her untimely death aged just 50, Acker's legend has faded, making her writing more legible. In this first, fully authorised biography, Kraus approaches Acker both as a writer, and as a member of the artistic communities from which she emerged.
