Excellent, brief literature by Kathy Acker, with her usual penchant for wordplay and extremity. A short book from Penguin's series of little 50-odd page dips into writer's works. Similar in intensity to Blood and Guts in High School, and a good introduction for anyone unfamiliar with Acker's poetic writing. ( )
