Abstract In numerous articles, interviews, and reviews, the late twentieth-century author Kathy Acker is described as a punk writer. This article explores the sources for Acker’s image as a punk writer: her autobiographical narratives, mode of self-presentation, and the role the publishing and media industries played in this authorial fashioning. I argue that Acker’s image is a unique suturing of the identities and ideologies of the punk and the feminist.
