I really expected to like this book, but just couldn't get into it. Like her mentor Burroughs, or his buddy Brion Gysin, the theory behind Acker's literature is compelling, but the product really isn't--at least not for long (I quit after 50 pages, twice). I admire this stuff--it's punk as fuck, so how can I not?--but don't necessarily devour it. I'm sure I'll give Blood and Guts another shot, but it's not too high on the list.
