BY BEN NARDOLILLI
A loud crash! Attempted suicide to redemption!
all the unforgettable moments and unforgettable testimonies,
often from outside the United States
While working at a strip club in Times Square in 1972
she connected the radical writing practices of New York City,
urging for nothing short of total cultural transformation
As part of an effort to map her “total present consciousness,”
she traveled between Moscow to Tashkent
becoming one who befriends, photographs, and translates
Through the publication of these varied texts across the ocean,
she opened up a revolutionary manifesto
about her successes and shortcomings in Nashville
