Reviews

PRAISE FOR EMPIRE OF THE SENSELESS

"[A] complex, high-speed, intensely intellectual, intensely offensive, post-modernist, pained and painful, punk, fantastic, fictional construct and elaborate tattoo of a novel." --New York Times

"Empire of the Senseless is a family romance turned inside out, a twisted re-creation of quest sagas and Bildungsroman and TV sitcoms." --Philadelphia Enquirer

"An apocalyptic tale that makes A Clockwork Orange look tame." --Publishers Weekly

"If you care to learn why Kathy Acker is such an important writer, I suggest you put aside your preconceptions, stop making sense, and read this book immediately." --Alan Moore
