This was my first intoduction to Kathy Acker and I loved every page. It feeds all those dark cravings that many books don't cater to. I first heard of Acker by reading William S.Burroughs whom she has some similarities with. Her writing is pure punk and by punk I mean total freedom. The only problem some people may have with her writing is that a lot of her books can be quite similar.

Huh? I don't get it. Pirate girls are cool though. Maybe if I were a woman I could swallow this book whole then spit it back out, transform myself, die, turn into a rat and all kinds of groovy stuff. I guess liked it anyway.

I realize that it is the 90's; however, I'm quite disappointed at the constant use of offensive language, sex and dream-state illusions which depict drug use. Credit has to be given to Kathy because she accomplished to involve her audience and upset some of us.
