Summary
Written in the shadow of Georg Buchner's Lenz, Aliens and Anorexia defines a female form of chance that is radical and emotional. The book unfolds like a set of Chinese boxes, using polemical narratives to lead the reader through a maze that spirals back into itself. Its characters include Simone Weil, the first radical philosopher of sadness, the artist Paul Thek, Kraus herself, and Africa, her virtual S/M partner who is shooting a big-budget Hollywood movie while Kraus is chronicling the failure of her low-budget independent film Gravity and Grace. Arguing for empathy as the ultimate perceptive tool, Aliens and Anorexia reclaims starvation from the psychoanalytic ghetto
