'Intense sexual desire is the greatest thing in the world'

A tale of art, sex, blood, junkies and whores in New York's underground, from cult literary icon Kathy Acker.

Penguin Modern: fifty new books celebrating the pioneering spirit of the iconic Penguin Modern Classics series, with each one offering a concentrated hit of its contemporary, international flavour. Here are authors ranging from Kathy Acker to James Baldwin, Truman Capote to Stanislaw Lem and George Orwell to Shirley Jackson.

There are essays radical and inspiring; poems moving and disturbing; stories surreal and fabulous; taking us from the deep South to modern Japan, New York's underground scene to the farthest reaches of outer space.

“Not really my thing, but an interesting read”

Not like anything I've read before, very stylised in it's wording and layout.
Very graphic descriptions, pictures placed intermittently between various styles of text.
I'm glad I bought/read it, perhaps... More
