This is like going to church, without the boring hymns or the itchy Sunday dress So actually it s not like church at all. This book should be read for expiremental purposes only It is like tripping balls on acid and letting Gloria Steinam drive the golf cart It is very bizzare, but interesting Some works make an occasional stab at presenting something dreamlike, and others maintain an oneiric tone throughout, but this book really gives the feeling of a prolonged dreaming session, with all of its abstraction, blurred identities, shifting scenes, perversity, horror, absurdity, guilty and interrupted pleasure, desire, confusion, mystery, intensity of experience, dullness of sense, emotional agelessness immaturity, embarrassment, shame, disgust and yet it s also very personal it s Kathy Some works make an occasional stab at presenting something dreamlike, and others maintain an oneiric tone

Acker s dream and we re in it.But never mind all that.Pussy is entertaining, quirky, funny, and moving It knows what it s up to, even if the reader doesn t There is no master narrative nor realist perspective to provide a background of social and historical facts.There is a lot of anti logical intuition in this book, which makes sense psychologically even if it makes no sense materially To know is to cause since to understand is to learn, I understood that consciousness isn t the mind and that it s consciousness, not the mind, which dies Pirate sex began on the date when the liquids began to gush forward As if when equals because.Acker is innovative and poetic, and she doesn t mind bending or breaking all language rules It is permissible, and this is important, to invent one s language, and it is further permissible to make language with extragrammatical meanings Attributed to Our Toad Artaud in speaking of Poe, but perhaps it s all Acker You see, Pussycat by me was seen to lean over bed, though near the roar of just buried freeway When I could no longer fall asleep realizing love just dead, my bed and new reigns of chill and pain crucified from within by all that s intolerable in the world and proud of it that s my kind of writingBut there is room, too, for some realism, relatively speaking, in that some of the games that Acker describes in the girls school seem like an almost too literal description of the social rites and rituals of teens abusing and ostracizing one another In another way, I would say she doesn t only look at alien things in this book, but rather she often looks at real things through alien eyes But I ll omit any quote to back this up now, as I have tons ofquotes to comeTo Acker, at least in her dreamworld of this novel, at least in one fictive persona, cities are ruination and death, and so is nature Nothing isn t This voice is loud here.we might as well crawl through this skanky skunk wood tangled garbage whatever it was called nature cause there maybe we could find that which could help us, though all of this so called nature lookeddesolate to me than a city that had burnt down and was remnants of human civilization.We were inching and grumbling through used beehives and rose petals I sneezed cause I m allergic to anything natural like the world.I think there s a significant possibility that Kathy Acker read everything and learned everything, and was smarter than all of us, and it took all of that to learn how to speak and write like a child.Humanity s gone away again.Bye bye.This book is part of a tradition I don t know what to call it and Acker is the mistress of this tradition I was tempted to define the tradition, by naming some other writers and movements, but I no maybe this tradition should just be called unbounded literature, and I ll leave it at that.Happy reading, to anyone who opts to give this one a try Kathy Acker s where it s at If where it s at is not Where Kathy Acker is, Then where it s at is

feminist postmodern badass writer died in 97 who delighted in tearing apart other works of literature and subverting and re purposing their contents, adding enough of her own work to be original AND Acker was friends with Neil Gaiman, who modeled the character Delirium in his Sandman series after Acker Squee That squee didn t last very long This book was not exactly what I expected when I signed up for a pirate adventure novel partially stolen from Treasure Island Acker examines all of the harshest motivations that would drive her girls to piracy prostitution, murder, poverty, abandonment, etc , and really revels in the gore and filth of their chosen lives The dream logic style adopted by Acker was a bit hard to follow especially at nearly 300 pages but it also gave the gore and filth and accompanying emotions immediacy This book was gross this book was hot It challenged me I ve never read anything like it If Tim Burton had meth withdrawal induced schizophrenia, he might aspire to create something as strange, morbid, scary and moral as this work.Wiki also informs me that Acker was influenced by the French feminists, which is fairly evident in her references to Freudian psychology She refers to the absentee father of one of the characters as the Cock of All Cocks I remember reading in my French Feminism Independent Study that one of the goals of French feminism is to create not simply a woman positive canon of literature, but a way for women to relate to themselves without at all drawing from any patriarchal influences that came before Considering Acker s cut and paste DIY dream logic prose and defiantly and purposefully controversial subject content, I d say that s exactly what Acker was trying to do here I may not agree with all of her opinions, but I know we re in the same boat For the sheer ambition, challenge, and originality of this book, I give it five stars Recommended listening Rebel Girl and Suck My Left One by Bikini Kill A bit crazy and wild

tell me which is true ignorance is bliss (FREE E-PUB) ñ Pussy, King of the Pirates ß A loose reworking of Robert Louis Stevenson s classic Treasure Island, Acker s radical interpretation is a masterfully directed, wild trek through real and imagined history, from the most famous whorehouse in Alexandria through an unidentified, crumbling city that may or may not be sometime in the future Acker pushes language to the tension point, explodes and reclaims it Boston Sunday Herald WORST BOOK OF ALL TIME I literally read this somewhere around twelve years ago, I don t ever remember, and it was SO BAD that I didn t read again for five years because I was afraid of books Literally, this book made me stupid for five years.
