What People are Saying About This

Catherine Texier

"Literal Madness is Acker at her most powerful, disturbing, and provocative."

Lynne Tillman

"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 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.
