Beginning as a rewriting of Charles Dickens classic of the same name, Great Expectations spirals into Kathy Acker's most notorious work of textual appropriation and literary homage, creating "variations on classic literary texts . . . [which] subvert all of our traditional expectations concerning causality, narrative form and moral sensibility."--(Michiko Kakutani, New York Times)
