    Often spectacular and VERY complex book I think the absolutely essential afterward hits it on the head the preoccupation with whether or not this is memoir or fiction, epistolary or invented, a preoccupation, I ll add, that I was a victim of myself masks the real achievement here, which is a structural masterclass in time management and a brutal look at love The 3 characters, Chris, Sylvere, and Dick himself, never behave in expected ways and yet always move with authenticity and a str Often spectacular and VERY complex book I think the absolutely essential afterward hits it on the head the preoccupation with whether or not this is memoir or fiction, epistolary or invented, a preoccupation, I ll add, that I was a victim of myself masks the real achievement here, which is a structural masterclass in time management and a brutal look at love The 3 characters, Chris, Sylvere, and Dick himself, never behave in expected ways and yet always ...

    I had to stop reading this It feels like I ve been tricked into participating in a cruel piece of performance art The titular Dick is real life Dick Hebdige He s a cultural critic who hangs out with Chris Kraus and her husband Sylvere one time Chris and Sylvere then begin to sexually harass and stalk Dick They write letters about fucking and killing him They call Dick on the pretext of discussing their art protect aka their sexual fantasies and record the phone call without his knowled I had to stop reading this It feels like I ve been tricked into participating in a cruel piece of performance art The titular Dick is real life Dick Hebdige He s a cultural critic who hangs out with Chris Kraus and her husband Sylvere one time Chris and Sylvere then begin to sexually harass and stalk Dick They write letters about fucking and killing him They call Dick on the pretext of discussing their art protect aka their sexual fantasies and record the phone call without his knowledge They send a sexually inappropriate fax to his work Dick isn t a willing muse He finds the whole thing disturbing, which is why I had to stop By continuing to read, I would have made myself a party to Dick s harassment and I just couldn t do that.That s not to say there isn t any artistic merit to the book Chris Kraus is an artist and seasoned intellectual The book is smart It s like Gauguin in that the act of se...
