Who's afraid of Kathy Acker?

Barbara Caspar
Kathy Acker, the outrageous punk icon banned in Germany but named in 2005 one of America’s original “outlaw writers” by the New York Times, lived life her life without boundaries. Acker challenged society’s ideal of femininity, daring to be tough & vulnerable at the same time. She left behind a legacy of sixteen novels that cannot be ignored, but she learned the heart way that breaking the rules never comes cheap.
