Written in the late 1970s, Blood and Guts in High School was met with widespread shock, outrage, and acclaim upon its initial publication in 1984, and remains Acker’s seminal work. Via fraught dialogue, hand-written poetry, crude illustrations, and prison journals (with Jean Genet himself even emerging as a central character), the literary pillars of youth, desire, punk, and feminism all collapse in Acker’s wake. What emerges is a voice that not only reshaped the avant-garde, but whose impact is still being felt across literature as a whole
