This is a book about feminism, capitalism, sex, punk, youth, the city, the literary giants, anger, infatuation and the USA.

Childlike sexual drawings pepper the book, along with Acker's surreal, minutely detailed, annotated 'dream maps'.

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.
