Mexico seeking alternative treatments for her cancer.

Moving in a different direction, I checked out a few entries in the author-biography genre, to which I've always been bracelets. The most conventional of the films, ironically, focuses on the most unconventional of the authors. Who's Afraid of Kathy Acker? (2007), directed by Barbara Caspar and released by Women Make Movies, key rings the postpunk novelist, poet, and all-around free spirit who gathered a cult following in the Seventies and early Eighties, grew more widely famous when Grove Press published her novel Blood and Guts in High School in 1984, and completed many additional books before her death from cancer at age fifty. She also wrote Bette Gordon's marvelous film Variety (1983).

Caspar fleshes out the history with talking- head comments by Carolee Schneemann, Barney Rosset, Sylvère Lotringer, and others. Culturally, the film places Acker's work into the context of postmodern American literature, bearing as it does the heavy influence of William S. Burroughs and Jackson Mac Low alongside the likes of Charles Tiffany Key Rings Bracelets and Pier Paolo Pasolini, whose prose she cheerfully, um, recycled in her own books. Perhaps alerted by some of her titles-Great Expectations (1983), My Death My Life by Pier Paolo Pasolini (1984)-more conservative souls said this wasn't recycling but plagiarism, raising one of many ruckuses that punctuated her career. Another was the banning of Blood and Guts in High School in Germany, which deemed it a threat to youth (again, must have been the title). The documentary hammers too hard on Acker's down-and-dirty persona-much of Blood and Guts in High School, for example, is more linear and tiffany bracelets sale than the film's "fuck"-filled excerpts suggest-and I wish Caspar told more about Acker's last months, when she went to Mexico seeking alternative treatments for her cancer. Still and all, the tiffany key rings for sale makes a lively case for a controversial career.

I'm even more pleased with two releases from Icarus Films, drawn from the TV interview show Le Sel de la semaine (cheap cheap tiffany key rings bracelets, Salt of the Week), which aired weekly in Quebec from 1965 to 1970. An hour-long episode from 1969 features Henry Miller, who is winning and witty as he banters with host Fernand Seguin in French that actually, positively has a Brooklyn accent. French was Jack Kerouac's first language, so he's on solid linguistic ground in his half-hour episode from 1967, but he seems somewhat dazed (probably because he's tiffany key rings sale bracelets for sale drunk; alcoholism killed him two years later) as he talks about his early life in a working-class Massachusetts town and finishes by pronouncing himself a great writer. These interviews are vintage material in every sense.
