I 1st heard about Acker thru my friend Charlie Brohawn in the 1970s. He was always a good source of info & he was excited about Acker because he'd heard that she made plagiarism a literary philosophy. When I finally got around to reading this bk many yrs later, I hated it. To make matters worse, it was published by Grove Press - one of my favorites. My recommendation? Don't waste yr time w/ this. Read the people that she rips off instead - esp Jean Genet. She's just a parasite. Then again, that's pretty harsh. Maybe someday I'll read something else by her & revise my opinion.
