Gertrude Stein's work is co-opted and re-imagined in an attempt to unravel the relationship between love and war; Walt Whitman makes a command performance in dismembered bits of forced, formal verse; and "The Exorcist" and "The Devil in Miss Jones" are sutured together in an attempt to locate the horror of desire. Fusing pornography and postfeminist theory, transcript and tell-all, these playful, penetrating poems and stories reach off the page in search of what it is to be known, both to the masses and to the "Other."
