If you like your important LGBTQ+ literary texts short, sharp and snappy, might Cookie suggest Up Your Ass, a rarely published play by vanguard NYC downtowner and Andy Warhol shooter Valerie Solanas.
According to publisher Sternberg Press, it explodes “social and sexual mores and the hypocritical, patriarchal culture that produces them” with “signature irreverence and wit, incisiveness and camp.”
Careful though, you just might see yourself imperfectly represented—as all representations are—in all your imperfectness, as “the unknowing john, the frothy career girl, the boring male narcissist, two catty drag queens, the sex-depraved housewife, and a pair of racialized pickup artists.”
