"If one day, a bad girl named Dante met a mean dyke called Hieronymous Bosch, this is the book they'd make." - Jenny Livingstone, director, Paris Burning.
"Scarified sensibility, subversive intellect, and predatory wit make her a writer like no other" - The New York Times Book Review
Kathy Acker holds a unique place among American novelists, as a writer who constantly pushes at the frontiers of modern fiction, with each new work advancing further into uncharted territory. Pussycat Fever is a hallucinatory amalgam of emotion and desire. Join Pussycat and the anonymous narrator on a journey filled with sex and dangerous liaisons. Coming of age was never like this! Kathy's words are complemented by the artwork of Diane DiMassa - best known for her long running comic book series Hothead Paisan - and the intriguing collages of famed artist Freddie Baer.
