My Death My Life by Pier Paolo Pasolini imagines the Italian filmmaker and writer returning to the Roman homosexual hustlers he knew, in a “scathing commentary on false values in art” (The Hartford Courant).
What People are Saying About This
"Literal Madness is Acker at her most powerful, disturbing, and provocative."
"No writer I know is more audicious than Cathy Acker, who's anarchic wit tries a thorough going attack on conventons and complacencies of all sorts....No unlike Gertrude Stein in her day, Acker gives us a different way to look at the uses to which language is put."
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Most of the time I have no idea what Acker is writing about, but I know it's excellent. She writes sex with the best ever, and observes the world with a deeply intellectual though simultaneously transgressive and punk rock attitude. She died way too young.
