Before, I thought people read books by this woman just to be able to scream in other people's faces, "I've read Kathy Acker!" Turns out, it's just a normal side effect. I can't say I liked every bit of this book, [who likes translating Persian poetry?] but I liked that it was different and non-boring. It will make you want to re-read The Scarlett Letter with freshened eyes (for the 3rd time) and subvert the patriarchy.

"I think most writers are crazy 'cause they sit in their rooms all the time and scribble down stuff no one wants to read and they don't fuck."
