"Some forms of literary expression resemble a controlled mimicry of demonic possession. Mary Woronov's writing spits it out like burning embers crackling off a bonfire."--Gary Indiana in Bookforum

From the euphoric moments of first love to the always desperate, often comic acts of terminal desire, the stories in Blind Love capture the essence of love in the twenty-first century. The insane, the callous predator, the overcautious, the egotistical, and the very brave, all meet their match in Blind Love. Some fight, some surrender, and others try to hide, but no one escapes. In each story, a life is changed forever by the uncontrollable force of love.

The success of her novels, Snake and Niagara--a Village Voice Top 25 Book of 2002--has established Mary Woronov as the surreal chronicler of Los Angeles life. The literary counterpart of David Lynch, she is a unique voice in American fiction.

Mary Woronov is a writer, film actor, and artist. She starred in the Andy Warhol films, Chelsea Girls, Screen Tests, Shower, Milk and Superboy; Oliver Stone's Seizure and Paul Bartel's Death Race 2000 and Eating Raoul. Previous books include the novels, Snake and Niagara and the memoir, Swimming Underground. She lives in Los Angeles.
