    I read this way back when, when when was only just becoming when. That's few years back now.

    Anyway, is it not true that if a songwriter writes something like Hallelujah or I Will Always Love You-oo a whole lot of people rush to record it and sometimes do really interesting & different versions - and some versions are better than the original, Jeff Buckley

    This is the most complex, cryptic, intellectual book I've ever read.
    No kidding, guys, it really drove me up the wall. Thank God it's very short (128 pages), because I had to read it three times in a row to even start gathering my thoughts.
    Even Calasso's works are vanilla in comparison with this cultural and emotional tour de force: a hypertext riddle, a Chinese

    Reason why I DNF'd after 11 pages:

    "The soldiers wake up stand up again tuck in their canvas shirttails suck in cheeks stained by tears dried by the steam from hot train rails rub their sex against the tires, the trucks go down into a dry ford mow down a few rose-bushes, the sap mixes with disemboweled teenagers' blood on their knives' metal, the soldiers' nailed boots

    The personal interiorization of the practice of humiliation is called humility.

    This is Jon typing. Jon has been reading. All day. Mortality has reaped recklessly as of late. Right now two people Jon loves are ill in a real bad way. Jon muses and frets. He reads. Jon loved this book despite it being Wrong. He'd love to quote and paste and rant-and-riff about LIFE. But he w

    I've been reading Kathy Acker in roughly chronological order, so I've had the pleasure of essentially seeing her honing her craft and develop her singular collage techniques. I'd rather expected to find her plots becoming a little more conventionally coherent in the process, but I'm pleased to report that though this is easily my favorite Acker yet, it's actually more broken up and disor

    I have a soft spot for this one, I believe the first Kathy Acker novel I ever read. (I read a short text she'd written for an art anthology called, humorously, Just Another Asshole where her work stood out so much I sought out her novels.) Overall Great Expectations isn't as epic as the later, longer novels but it is probably her most personal work and very characteristic of her style of app

    ’We shall define sexuality as that which can’t be satisfied and therefore as that which transforms the person.’

    I would like to give it more stars. Groundbreaking work should get all the encouragement one can give, but I just didn't understand it. Fortunately, in a way, I didn't expect to like the book and I was not disappointed. I was pleased to discover several shorter passages that did move me.

    - Obviously the rules which govern the dress and conduct of the terrorists don't apply to her. (48)

    No doubt the late Ms. Acker would abhor the whole notion of a star rating system, probably regarding it as the by-product of the capitalist patriarchy's emphasis on hierarchical order. This order, Acker and other postmodern punk feminists would argue, is a necessary precondition for perpetuating the hegemony of man (specifically, the white, heterosexual, socially dominant, predatory male). And so, a see

    This is one of Acker's lushest books, but one of her most caustic books as well. One could argue that all her books are simultaneously sadistic and masochistic...this one being no exception in that regard...the Dickens title and parody refer more to the expectations artists hold for the artistic life, and she brutally dissects all this with the eye of an economist...she equates the economies that thrive in
