ISBN: (ISSN)02760045
Elmwood Park, IL: The Dalkey Archive Press, 1989. First Printing. Softcover. This fall 1989 number of the venerable literary journal is partly dedicated to articles by & about Kathy Acker, the late experimental writer often cited as a literary post-punk progeny of William S. Burroughs among other influences. Includes the transcript of a conversation between Acker & Ellen G. Friedman, as well as articles by Acker herself, Naomi Jacobs, Robert Siegle & others. Also in this issue are sections of articles by & about Christine Brooke-Rose & Marguerite Young. With notes on contributors, reviews, ads, etc. Loosely inserted & included here is a small booklet, consisting of a single oblong sheet folded accordion-style into quarters, of a rather insightful essay entitled Kathy Acker: Novelist with Wound, by "Bagworm," no place/no date though we believe it is approximately from the mid-1980s. Two very significant items for the Acker scholar-collector. Journal volume in very fine condition, with only the very slightest rubbing & scratching to dark front, back covers, tiniest bumps to edges, top, bottom of spine & corners. Interior very fine & complete including loose subscription card, with only very light bending to top right corner through most leaves. Fragile booklet in almost mint condition with only very light creases along folds. Very Fine. [Item #1638]
