Kathy Acker

So Xec8 and I were briefly discussing Kathy Acker in one of the threads recently and he remarked that he was surprised that more Culties weren't into her work. So I was just wondering how many of you guys & gals are familiar with her work. Books like [I]Blood & Guts In High School[/I], [I]Empire of the Senseless[/I], [I]Great Expectations[/I], [I]Don Quixote[/I], and [I]Pussy, King of the Pirates[/I]. What do you think about her use of plagiarized sections of other writer's books, Burrough's cut-and-paste technique, and her radical politics? Any thoughts or comments are welcome.
