Kathy Acker one of the most innovative, startling and influential writers of the late 20th century. Known variously, and notoriously, as a consummate postmodernist, feminist, post-punk and plagiarist, her oeuvre -- over a dozen novels and novellas -- has inspired a generation of writers and artists. Lust for Life is the definitive collection of essays on Acker's inimitable work. These distinguished scholars and writers reveal Acker's profound and innovative project, and the ways in which fiction can penetrate the heart of political and cultural life. Contributors: Nayland Blake , Leslie Dick, Robert Gluck, Carla Harryman, Laurence Rickels, Avital Ronell, Barrett Watten, and Peter Wollen.
