Books Info:

Kathy Acker and Transnationalism free pdf Since Kathy Acker's death in 1997 the body of critical work on her fiction has continued to grow, and even to flourish. The continuing critical attention that her work has received is testament both to the complexity and intellectual scope of her many artistic and critical projects, and to the continuing relevance of her concerns and ambitions in the recent and contemporary world- a world that her fictions prefigure and interrogate in ways that we perhaps could not have recognized during her lifetime. This collection of essays provides readers with access to a range of critical and theoretical essays that present a detailed analysis of transnationalism in Kathy Acker's fiction. A wider aim of this book is to locate Acker's work in the context of current debates on transnationalism, postnationalism, and global identity. "Kathy Acker and Transnationalism" therefore constitutes a timely re-appraisal of an important American writer, and a contribution to the growing field of studies in transnationalism.
