An interesting idea, but the novelty wore off pretty quickly. It was written like the author enjoys reading literary theory more than fiction and literature, I'm afraid. I have a feeling that anyone who reads literary theory for pleasure will get a blast out of this, but for me, it was simply tiresome, and heavy on the profanity included for shock value as opposed to need or sense. It might have been based off of an idea worth pursuing on some level, but not to this degree. No, I don't recommend it.

This is Acker's best novel. Her repudiation of linear narrative is in peak form in Don Quixote.
