Kathy Acker fan? I can’t find any other links or sources online [yet] that verify that Chiasmus Press really is releasing the book, titled “I’m very into you,” this year, but I’d love to read it if they do, since it purportedly will feature “email correspondence that took place in 1995 between writers Kathy Acker and McKenzie Wark.”

At The Rusty Toque they break down what the book involves, including the intro from John Kinsella.

Here’s a sample Acker email:

Oh will I remember all that you just wrote? Memory slips even more than…what?…
gender (is that self? not here)…and I was going to email, I can’t even remember
spelling, to just quickly tell you about the movie I just saw, Todd Haynes _Safe_…
and your email!…now I can’t remember all you said ‘cause I want to tell you,
emotion taking over, see _Safe_, it is WONDERFUL hits the spot (advertisers make correctness) makes the art world into the stupid nothing it is…well it is so great seeing something that good…I saw it with RU we’re friends again which is great ‘cause I
hate losing friends there aren’t enough and it is my family, my friends…so now all is dream…
