Reviews

Praise for Great Expectations

"Great Expectations in its boisterousness and strong language and sense of the injustice-of-it-all is closely related to Henry Miller."--Carolyn See, Los Angeles Times

"Acker's most accomplished experimental work . . . As she says in Great Expectations, 'a narrative is an emotional moving.' It should be, but she's one of the few people . . . who manage to blend that kind of warmth, gutsiness, and skill."--Sally O'Driscoll, Village Voice

"[Acker's] most completely unified work of art . . . One that by its formal concentration and its unified shape at every depth of reading fulfills the sort of demands that Sterne or Canetti makes of the novelist."--Alain Robbe-Grillet

"A postmodern Colette with echoes of Cleland's Fanny Hill."--William S. Burroughs
