Beginning with The Childlike Life of the Black Tarantula in 1973, Kathy Acker set out on a brilliant journey exploring the boundaries of modern fiction that has since made her one of the most celebrated novelists of her generation.
From the start, Kathy Acker created a brash and sexy female voice as shocking as the worlds she invokes. In Childlike Life she steps into the biography of a Mississippi murderess who falls in love with a famous lawyer. In I Dreamt I Was a Nymphomaniac she takes a man capable of deceiving both sexes as her lover in a dreamy odyssey through the labyrinth of her desires. In The Adult Life of Toulouse Lautrec is a woman starved for love and sex.
All of Acker's obsessions -- the frenzy of sexual desire, the search for identity, the invention of a new literary language -- are present here with a savage purity and raw energy matched only rarely in her later works.Reseña del editor:
The Childlike Life of the Black Tarantula by the Black Tarantula; I Dreamt I Was a Nymphomaniac; The Adult Life of Toulouse-Lautrec by Henri Toulouse-Lautrec
