“What makes this book powerful is the archetypal punch behind each image, a punch that comes from an unknown assailant dressed in red wearing brass knuckles. Only Acker delivers it that way.” The Los Angeles Times

Kathy Acker holds a unique place among American novelists as a writer who consistently pushes at the frontiers of modern fiction, with each new work advancing further into unchartered territory. Based loosely on the relationship between Colette Peignot and Georges Bataille, My Mother: Demonology tells the powerful story of a woman struggling with the contradictory impulses for both love and solitude.
