About the Author

Gary Indiana is a novelist, playwright, critic, essayist, filmmaker, and artist. Hailed by the Guardian as "one of the most important chroniclers of the modern psyche," and by the Observer as one of the most woefully underappreciated writers of the last 30 years, he published a memoir, I Can Give You Anything But Love, in 2015. He is also the author of Three Month Fever: The Andrew Cunanan Story and Resentment: A Comedy (both published by Semiotex(e)).

Chris Kraus is the author of four novels, including I Love Dick and Summer of Hate; two books of art and cultural criticism; and most recently, After Kathy Acker: A Literary Biography. She received the College Art Association's Frank Jewett Mather Award in Art Criticism in 2008, and a Warhol Foundation Art Writing grant in 2011. She lives in Los Angeles.

Reviews

Gary Indiana's writing remains filled with so much venomous aggression that it is almost easier to ignore the flood of compassion bubbling up beneath it.... He is, I think, one of the most woefully underappreciated writers of the last 30 years.

--M.H. Miller, New York Observer

One reads Mr. Indiana's new work with astonishment at his talent, and astonishment at the absurdist bleakness of his vision.

--Richard Bernstein, New York Times

Gary Indiana is a fearless and valuable writer, willing to recount anything human beings are capable of with a kind of angry compassion and a spritz of disgust.

--The Washington Post

Indiana's work... is criminally underrated; ergo, is sure to be reexamined, over and over again.

--Sarah Nicole Prickett, Bookforum
