Cunt-Ups Dodie Bellamy

Published by Tender Buttons Press, New York, 2019, 80 pages, 12.7 × 17.7 cm, English

Price: €17

Dodie Bellamy’s Cunt-Ups – first published in 2001 and recipient of the Firecracker Award for Innovative Poetry– was immediately a controversial and celebrated work. Using the “cut-up” method of William S. Burroughs, Cunt-Ups is a work of sex magick, based on source texts from old lovers and Jeffery Dahmer transcriptions. The resulting spell queers everything around it.
