The Childlike Life of the Black Tarantula
The Black Tarantula (Kathy Acker).
TVRT: 1978. Second edition. Paperback. Very good.
Second collected edition of what began as a six part serial, printed and distributed by Acker to friends. Surreal, semi-autobigraphical scorched Earth erotica, combining contemporary scenes and content from de Sade.
"I've clearly demonstrated that I no longer need to work. Fire and steel surround my flaming head. Let the thrones of Europe crumble of themselves; your delight will send them flying without your having to meddle at all."
