I Love Dick - Chris Kraus

Jonathan Gibbs writing for The Independent explains why this book, a playful discussion on the artistic process, is as much about the serious business of love and sex: “What remains so brilliant about the book is the real, useful thought that Kraus builds out of her romantic fantasy. This starts, though doesn't end, with her consideration of love and desire, how ‘sex short-circuits all imaginative exchange’. Chris and Sylvère separate; Chris and Dick do sleep together, but still he remains distant, callous, even as Chris is driven to lonely despair, spending a cold winter holed up in Upstate New York. She gets lost in the woods and nearly dies, and goes to the toilet in the yard because the pipes in her house have frozen: images such as these go a long way to balancing out the discussions of critical theory - Deleuze and Guattari and the like - that dominate later parts of the book.” Read the full review here: http://ind.pn/2kizjp5
