New York: Pantheon Books, 1993. Uncorrected Proof. Octavo, publisher's printed blue paper wraps, publisher's proof dust jacket laid in.
"Murder is a dream because lack is the center of both." Advance uncorrected proof of influential postmodernist writer and performance artist Kathy Acker’s most difficult and demanding novel. Violating narrative convention in her usual fashion, Acker’s fragmented first-person narrative in the voice of protagonist Laure is loosely based on the passionate and all consuming affair between 20th-century French writers Colette Peignot (who wrote under the pen-name Laure) and George Bataille. Publisher's proof dust jacket intended for the hardcover first edition, with "Proof" inkstamped to verso, laid in. Fine. Item #2832
