Rather than calling for a revolution, Preciado's Manifesto argues the revolution has already begun.--Advocate
Paul Preciado's work has been immensely important to me, as well as to countless others. It's so fantastic, then, that we finally have his first book on offer. Like so much that he has offered since, Countersexual Manifesto is freewheeling and learned, rabble-rousing and meticulous, spirited and essential. Whether you want to argue with it, mine it, or become a convert to its call, you should definitively read it, keep it by your side.--Maggie Nelson, author of The Argonauts
Countersexual Manifesto is a well-lubricated double dong: phantasmagorical poetry on one end, penetrating theory on the other, and a thorough examination of body politics being the shaft. Each sentence delivers a thrust, deep inside, that elicits a yes, yes, yes! Bend over, insert this book, and enjoy the ride.--Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens, ecosexual artists and educators
Countersexual Manifesto is a utopian cry to manifest revolutionary change in the face of necropolitical practices and planetary destruction.--RL Goldberg "Los Angeles Review of Books "
