McKenzie Wark’s most recent book is General Intellects (Verso 2017) and is co-author with Kathy Acker of I’m Very Into You: Correspondence 1995-1996 (Semiotext(e) 2015).
Kathy Acker is a writer whose readership has never gone away, even after her death at age 50 in 1997. There’s some strange margin of the literary world where queers, punks, riot girls and avant-gardists have found reasons to keep turning to her.
In these times, we are constantly assaulted with news so monotonously predictable that it cannot possibly be true. The war goes on. Corruption rules. The economy teeters.
