"Acker gives her work the power to mirror the reader's soul" - William S. Burroughs"Kathy Acker's writing is virtuoso, maddening, crazy, so sexy, so painful, and beaten out of a wild heart that nothing can tame. Acker is a landmark writer" - Jeanette Winterson
About Kathy Acker
Novelist, prose stylist and feminist writer Kathy Acker was born 1947 in Manhattan and died 1997 in Tijuana, Mexico. Acker's first work appeared in print as part of the burgeoning New York literary establishment, only being published by small presses until the mid-1980s, thus earning herself the epithet of literary terrorist. In her work, she combined plagiarism, cut-up techniques, pornography, autobiography, persona and personal essay to confound expectations of what fiction should be. Her highly innovative and highly acclaimed books include Blood and Guts in High School, Don Quixote, Empire of the Senseless, In Memoriam to Identity, Pussy and Eurydice in the Underworld, which was published by Arcadia in 1997.
