EMPIRE OF THE SENSELESS. Kathy Acker.

EMPIRE OF THE SENSELESS. New York: Grove Press, [1988]. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First U.S. edition. A story set sometime in the future -- a bleak post-revolutionary world in which our society lies dying amid its own ruins. A dystopian future populated by terrorists and the wretched of the Earth that "features the not-quite terminal coupling of fleshly beings and robots ... Her use of sf icons and decor in this book resembles that of William S. Burroughs, especially in its homage to Cyberpunk, conveyed by cutups of text by William Gibson." - John Clute, SFE (online). Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#151301).

Price: $65.00
