About this author

Stewart Home (born 1963) is an English writer, satirist and artist. He is best known for novels such as the non-narrative "69 Things to Do with a Dead Princess" (2002), his re-imagining of the 1960s in "Tainted Love" (2005), and more recent books such as "Mandy, Charlie & Mary-Jane" (2013) that use pulp and avant-garde tropes to parody conventional literature. His unusual approach to writing is reflected in the readings he gives from his novels: he recites from memory, utilises ventriloquism, stands on his head and declaims his work and even shreds his own books at public appearances.

Home's first books appeared in the late nineteen-eighties. "The Assault on Culture: Utopian currents from Lettrisme to Class War" (Aporia Press and Unpopul...more

Christo and Jeanne-Claude began work on Running Fence in 1972. The fence was 5.5 meters high and 40 kilometres long. It was constructed in Sonoma and Marin Counties, [...]

Mostly this is a tedious account of a dull marriage with snippets of cybersex and a brief passage with supposedly 'real' sex. However the overall vibe is completely fake and it isn't convincing as non-fiction. And if it had been honestly marketed as...more

“Its protagonists were lonely and Williams explores their past and present lives in the kind of tedious detail that could only appeal to retards who appreciate 'literary depth' and 'characterisation'.”

“I am nothing but I must be everything.”
Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right

“With the historical radar of Marx’s theories, on whose screen observers who have not swallowed the alcohol of the intoxicating bourgeois ideology cannot read lies, in the fog of the depths off Nantacket, in the dark of the walled tomb of the living in Marcinelle, in the bitterness of the slime of the stagnant ponds of the Arabian Desert, while the forces of the Revolution seem to be hiding and Great Capital carouses in the bright sunlight, we have again found, at his inexhaustible work, the Old Mole who undermines the curse of the infamous social forms, who prepares for the not near, but most certain, destructive explosion.”
Amadeo Bordiga

“Dialectic concepts can permit the existence of UFOs and other life-forms... Even if these reports of flying saucers are fantasies, as is possible that the majority may be, many of them, their historical basis is correct… the scientific capacity of human beings is determined by their social organisation... The answers to these mysteries would lie in a study of Marxism." From Les Soucoupes Volantes (Flying Saucers)”
Juan R. Posadas
