Can't review this book because the bell hooks (and Lydia Lunch, less so) interview motivated me in the same way as all the David Foster Wallace I've read did, not to be ironic, flippant, not to operate on default mechanisms of distrust, fear, and meanness, not to be afraid of loneliness, not to perpetuate hurt, and then talking about it I get very serious and humorless, and I can't be any of those things on the internet without also being self-editing. The internet is the exact place to be ironic and flippant and being otherwise feels downright unnatural. So allow me to sum up: good book! Well curated and edited. As a nascent feminist, still overcautious about most things, some of these women scare the living shit out of me but like I said, some of these interviews really cut to the quick, not just about sexism, but about failures in human relationships in general. I didn't like this at first because it lacked a sense of humor but it is okay to assert, without a wink to the audience, that some things deserve to be taken seriously. ( )

Looks like a big fancy fanzine. Some well-knowns mixed in with some fringe characters. An enjoyable read for the fierce feminist types like me. ( )

Life changing. From the front cover to the back page, this book will rock you - although it seems like a message from distant history. One of the worst things about the Bush II administration is not having Kathy Acker around to tear it down by the roots. ( )
