When Chris Kraus, an unsuccessful artist pushing 40, spends an evening with a rogue academic named Dick, she falls madly and inexplicably in love, enlisting her husband in her haunted pursuit. Dick proposes a kind of game between them, but when he fails to answer their letters Chris continues alone, transforming an adolescent infatuation into a new form of philosophy. Blurring the lines of fiction, essay and memoir, Chris Kraus's novel was a literary sensation when it was first published in 1997. Widely considered to be the most important feminist novel of the past two decades, I Love Dick is still essential reading; as relevant, fierce and funny as ever.

Authorship's Wake examines the aftermath of the 1960s critique of the author, epitomized by Roland Barthes's essay, “The Death of the Author.” This critique has given rise to a body of writing that confounds generic distinctions separating the literary and the theoretical. Its archive consists of texts by writers who either directly participated in this critique, as Barthes did, or whose intellectual formation took place in its immediate aftermath. These writers include some who are known primarily as theorists (Judith Butler), others known primarily as novelists (Zadie Smith, David Foster Wallace), and yet others whose texts are difficult to categorize (the autofiction of Chris Kraus, Sheila Heti, and Ben Lerner; the autotheory of Maggie Nelson). These writers share not only a central motivating question – how to move beyond the critique of the author-subject – but also a way of answering it: by writing texts that merge theoretical concerns with literary discourse. Authorship's Wake traces the responses their work offers in relation to four themes: communication, intention, agency, and labor.

Filmmaker sperimentale di trentanove anni, Chris è sposata con Sylvère, docente universitario di cinquantasei anni. Appassionata d’arte di cattiva qualità, che secondo lei rende molto piú attivo chi la osserva, Chris, diversamente da Sylvère, non si esprime in un linguaggio teorico. È abituata perciò ad attenersi a un perfetto silenzio quando Sylvère si avventura nei suoi discorsi sulla teoria critica postmoderna. Non facendo piú sesso, i due però non evitano affatto di parlare. Praticano anzi una rigorosa «decostruzione» a modo loro. In altre parole, si raccontano tutto. Dopo aver trascorso l’intero anno sabbatico di Sylvère in un cottage sperduto tra le montagne a un’ora e mezza da Los Angeles, una sera i due cenano in un sushi bar di Pasadena con Dick, critico culturale inglese e buon conoscente di Sylvère. Durante la cena, mentre i due uomini discettano sulle ultime tendenze del postmoderno, Chris si accorge che Dick cerca di continuo il suo sguardo, e non può fare a meno di sentirsi eccitata da quell’inaspettata attenzione. Eccitazione che si accresce quando, dopo aver raggiunto casa di Dick nel deserto di Antelope Valley, per trascorrervi la notte ed evitare cosí di avventurarsi sulle strade innevate, Chris si rende conto che l’inglese flirta apertamente con lei. Lo sogna perciò tutta la notte. Ma la mattina dopo, quando si sveglia sul divano letto offerto dal loro generoso ospite, Dick non c’è piú. Quella scomparsa le sembra il perfetto compimento di un’intensa storia non vissuta, anzi, come confessa a Sylvère, di una «Scopata Concettuale ». Una volta tornati nel cottage, Sylvère – per un gioco perverso o forse perché per la prima volta dall’estate scorsa Chris gli appare animata e viva – le suggerisce di scrivere a Dick e di esprimergli i suoi sentimenti. Pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1997 e tornato prepotentemente a far parlare di sé, I love Dick è un romanzo di culto considerato «uno dei piú importanti libri femministi degli ultimi due decenni» (Observer) oltre che «un formidabile romanzo di idee» (New Statesman). «Questo è il libro piú importante sugli uomini e sulle donne che l’ultimo secolo ci ha lasciato». Guardian «I Love Dick è uno dei più importanti libri mai scritti sull’essere donna». Observer Magazine «Uno dei piú esplosivi, rivelatori, laceranti e insoliti memoir mai portati sulla pagina». Rick Moody «Per anni, prima di leggerlo, ho continuato a sentir parlare di I love Dick. Sono in ritardo di due decenni, ma ho capito subito di avere tra le mani un testo incandescente». Leslie Jamison, New Yorker

Autotheory--the commingling of theory and philosophy with autobiography--as a mode of critical artistic practice indebted to feminist writing and activism. In the 2010s, the term "autotheory" began to trend in literary spheres, where it was used to describe books in which memoir and autobiography fused with theory and philosophy. In this book, Lauren Fournier extends the meaning of the term, applying it to other disciplines and practices. Fournier provides a long-awaited account of autotheory, situating it as a mode of contemporary, post-1960s artistic practice that is indebted to feminist writing, art, and activism. Investigating a series of works by writers and artists including Chris Kraus and Adrian Piper, she considers the politics, aesthetics, and ethics of autotheory.

Contemporary Feminist Life-Writing is the first volume to identify and analyse the 'new audacity' of recent feminist writings from life. Characterised by boldness in both style and content, willingness to explore difficult and disturbing experiences, the refusal of victimhood, and a lack of respect for traditional genre boundaries, new audacity writing takes risks with its author's and others' reputations, and even, on occasion, with the law. This book offers an examination and critical assessment of new audacity in works by Katherine Angel, Alison Bechdel, Marie Calloway, Virginie Despentes, Tracey Emin, Sheila Heti, Juliet Jacques, Chris Krauss, Jana Leo, Maggie Nelson, Vanessa Place, Paul Preciado, and Kate Zambreno. It analyses how they write about women's self-authorship, trans experiences, struggles with mental illness, sexual violence and rape, and the desire for sexual submission. It engages with recent feminist and gender scholarship, providing discussions of vulnerability, victimhood, authenticity, trauma, and affect.

What kinds of pleasure do we take from writing and reading? What authority has the writer over a text? What are the limits of language's ability to communicate ideas and emotions? Moreover, what are the political limitations of these questions? The work of the French cultural critic and theorist Roland Barthes (1915-80) poses these questions, and has become influential in doing so, but the precise nature of that influence is often taken for granted. This is nowhere more true than in poetry, where Barthes' concerns about pleasure and origin are assumed to be relevant, but this has seldom been closely examined. This innovative study traces the engagement with Barthes by poets writing in English, beginning in the early 1970s with one of Barthes' earliest Anglophone poet readers, Scottish poet-theorist Veronica Forrest-Thomson (194775). It goes on to examine the American poets who published in L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E and other small but influential journals of the period, and other writers who engaged with Barthes later, considering his writings' relevance to love and grief and their treatment in poetry. Finally, it surveys those writers who rejected Barthes' theory, and explores why this was. The first study to bring Barthes and poetry into such close contact, this important book illuminates both subjects with a deep contemplation of Barthes' work and a range of experimental poetries.

The latest novel from the author of cult super-hit I LOVE DICK It's Summer, 1991, the dawning of the New World Order; a post-MTV, pre-AOL generation. Jerome Shafir and Sylvie Green, two former New Yorkers who can no longer afford an East Village apartment, set off on a journey across the entire former Soviet Bloc with the intention of adopting a Romanian orphan. Unflinchingly dark, hilarious and moving, Torpor is at once a satire and philosophy of cultural history, social identity and failing relationships. Dipping into the trajectory of a life at different moments, Kraus interrogates convention and emotion, creating characters that are flawed, witty, and altogether true to life. Part prequel, part sequel, Torpor continues a project of life-writing: personal, unsparing, and triumphant. If I Love Dick is the book of your 20s, Torpor is the book of your 30s.

No Such Thing as Justice is an epistolary novel about a woman who is up against the system. Through a series of diary entries, we follow Betty Benson’s life story, one that includes her relationships, and all the trouble they deliver to her. In no time, Betty is mom to two little kids, holding down as much work as she can while her son’s father neglects his parental responsibilities. She chases him but he ducks and weaves, exploiting systemic loopholes that condone the derelict’s behaviour and ignore the victim’s plight. Betty needs to secure custody of her child against a man who’s proven himself a risk, but she can’t afford the fight in a judicial infrastructure that equates justice with the ability to pay for it. Here is a universal story that plays out inside an all-too-familiar arena, where money trumps all. No Such Thing as Justice showcases effort and disappointment, betrayal and despair, and most of all a story of motherly love.

Offering the everyday tasks of literary editors as inspired sources of postwar literary history Michel Foucault famously theorized “the author function” in his 1969 essay “What Is an Author?” proposing that the existence of the author limits textual meaning. Abram Foley shows a similar critique at work in the labor of several postwar editors who sought to question and undo the corporate “editorial/industrial complex.” Marking an end to the powerful trope of the editor as gatekeeper, The Editor Function demonstrates how practices of editing and publishing constitute their own kinds of thought, calling on us to rethink what we read and how. The Editor Function follows avant-garde American literary editors and the publishing practices they developed to compete against the postwar corporate consolidation of the publishing industry. Foley studies editing and publishing through archival readings and small press and literary journal publishing lists as unique sites for literary inquiry. Pairing histories and analyses of well- and lesser-known figures and publishing formations, from Cid Corman’s Origin and Nathaniel Mackey’s Hambone to Dalkey Archive Press and Semiotext(e), Foley offers the first in-depth engagement with major publishing initiatives in the postwar United States. The Editor Function proposes that from the seemingly mundane tasks of these editors—routine editorial correspondence, line editing, list formation—emerge visions of new, better worlds and new textual and conceptual spaces for collective action.

What does artistic resistance look like in the twenty-first century, when disruption and dissent have been co-opted and commodified in ways that reinforce dominant systems? In The Play in the System Anna Watkins Fisher locates the possibility for resistance in artists who embrace parasitism—tactics of complicity that effect subversion from within hegemonic structures. Fisher tracks the ways in which artists on the margins—from hacker collectives like Ubermorgen to feminist writers and performers like Chris Kraus—have willfully abandoned the radical scripts of opposition and refusal long identified with anticapitalism and feminism. Space for resistance is found instead in the mutually, if unevenly, exploitative relations between dominant hosts giving only as much as required to appear generous and parasitical actors taking only as much as they can get away with. The irreverent and often troubling works that result raise necessary and difficult questions about the conditions for resistance and critique under neoliberalism today.

The schizoanalytic method and the lines of flight that it has inspired align with contemporary feminist concerns and practices in productive and revealing ways in this ground-breaking collection. To address the relevance of schizoanalysis for contemporary developments in new materialism, affect theory, transnational feminism, political ontology, feminist critiques of globalization and capitalism, feminist pedagogy, and ethics, the overarching questions explored are: What can schizoanalysis do for feminist theory? What would a feminist schizoanalysis look like? Is it possible to perform a schizoanalysis of feminism? How do schizoanalytic-feminist alliances create new ways of understanding the future, sexuality and bodily transformation, political resistance, new subjectivities, and ethical relationships? Highlighting the strength, richness, and diversity of feminist perspectives this collection shows how issues of re-conceiving desire, theorizing embodiment and materiality, interrogating the status of sexuality and difference, decentring feminist practice to be inclusive of transnational and de-colonial concerns, critiques of binary logic and gender, transversal politics, and the need for new political visions in light of advanced capitalism are all enhanced by this alliance.
