This is a book about feminism, capitalism, sex, punk, youth, the city, the literary giants, anger, infatuation and the USA. A teenage coming-of-age story and a glorious, delirious patchwork of prose, poetry, drama, plagiarism and illustration. Childlike sexual drawings pepper the book, along with Acker's surreal, minutely detailed, annotated 'dream maps'.
Series: Penguin modern classics
165 pages : illustrations (black and white) ; 20 cm.
This is not a light or comfortable read, but in places it is certainly fresh and entertaining, and you won't forget it in a hurry ....but not for the faint hearted.
