“Stop it, Ted,” I Screamed When he Finally Released Me. But he Didn’t Hear…“ [The Adult Life of Toulouse Lautrec]

Kathy Acker
TVRT Press

This modestly printed chapbook is a precursor to, and an excerpt from, Acker’s better known but out of print 1978 version of The Adult Life… In a series of short narratives which share themes of sexuality and power, Acker takes on desire, resistance, abuse, pornography, and happy endings. Acker published several “chapters” this way, while still writing the book, and originally handed them out to friends at parties and openings.
