Fiction. LGBT Studies. Perhaps the first conceptualist novel for young adults.JonBenet meets Kathy Acker in a rollicking coming-of-age tale set in the snow globe of Boulder, Colorado. With guest appearances by Little Lord Fauntleroy, H. P. Lovecraft, the Blue Fairy, a wind-up Walter Benjamin, a soft-toy Cthulhu, O (from Story of O), and many more. Neither tribute nor pastiche, THE MEMOIRS OF JONBENET BY KATHY ACKER investigates the "self" of very-late-capitalism in a collage of all that is right, and terribly wrong, in America.THE MEMOIRS OF JONBENET BY KATHY ACKER is published as part of the TrenchArt: Surplus Series, with an introduction by Peggy Kamuf and visual art by Klaus Killisch.
