    If You're A Girl

    Ann Rower

    Rower's fiction is a devious transcription of life as it morphs into stories that turn into still more stories, palimpsets inscribed in a true confessional mode: a transfiction.

    Elizabeth LeComte: Alright, I want to know something and I want the straight dope. Were you ever in the sack with this guy? Ann Rower: With [Timothy] Leary? Willem Dafoe: Oh, here it is... " Ann and I ambled up to the bedroom." [laughter] Ann Rower: Ah, he was a liar. He's so dishonest. I mean, he was a classic paranoid... but like most paranoids he turned out to be right... Ann Rower writes like Dorothy Parker as if she'd taken acid to come down from speed. Funny, sad and smart, Rower's fiction is a devious transcription of life as it morphs into stories that turn into still more stories, palimpsets inscribed in a true confessional mode: a transfiction. If You're A Girl, published in 1990, includes Rower's story about Timothy Leary's Millbrook days, which formed the basis of The Wooster Group's acclaimed play LSD... Just The High Points. Perhaps the most distinguished American writer ever to have babysat for Timothy Leary.

    Hatred of Capitalism

    A Semiotext(e) Reader

    Chris Kraus and Sylvère Lotringer

    Jean Baudrillard meets Cookie Mueller in this gathering of French theory and new American fiction.

    Compiled in 2001 to commemorate the passing of an era, Hatred of Capitalism brings together highlights of Semiotext(e)'s most beloved and prescient works. Semiotext(e)'s three-decade history mirrors the history of American thought. Founded by French theorist and critic Sylvere Lotringer as a scholarly journal in 1974, Semiotext(e) quickly took on the mission of melding French theory with the American art world and punk underground. Its Foreign Agents, Native Agents, Active Agents and Double Agents imprints have brought together thinkers and writers as diverse as Gilles Deleuze, Assata Shakur, Bob Flanagan, Paul Virillio, Kate Millet, Jean Baudrillard, Michelle Tea, William S. Burroughs, Eileen Myles, Ulrike Meinhof, and Fanny Howe. In Hatred of Capitalism, editors Kraus and Lotringer bring these people together in the same volume for the first time.
