              Clinic of Phantasms: Writings 1994-2002 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Intra, Giovanni; Edited by Leonard, Robert; Foreword by Kraus, Chris; Von Schlegell, Mark; Introduction by Berardini, Andrew

              Artist, gallerist, and writer Giovanni Intra's inventive approach to art writing provides a guide to the New Zealand and Los Angeles art scenes of his era. Everything you read about Los Angeles is true. The city adapts to its own mythology. It's such a ludicrously discussed place... that I always feel slightly idiotic in my attempts to produce a serious discourse about it. Raves in the desert, however, are superb. And ecstasy is a great drug. Also, if you hadn't heard, music sounds better when you're high. And the desert surrounding LA is wondrous. --Giovanni Intra, LA Politics Before his early death in 2002, Giovanni Intra enjoyed a rollercoaster ride through the art world. He was an artist and gallerist--cofounding two legendary galleries, the artist-run space Teststrip in Auckland and China Art Objects Galleries in Los Angeles--as well as a writer. Clinic of Phantasms provides a guide to the New Zealand and Los Angeles art scenes of the day, including texts on key artists from New Zealand (John Hurrell, Fiona Pardington, Denise Kum, Ava Seymour, Ann Shelton, Gavin Hipkins, Daniel Malone, and Slave Pianos) and Los Angeles (Charles Ray, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy, Dave Muller, Evan Holloway, John McCracken, and Julia Scher). What makes Intra's work of enduring significance is his inventive approach to art writing, which was informed by his interest in punk, surrealism, and Daniel Paul Schreber, the famous case study in paranoia and hallucination. This volume features writing on Intra from Chris Kraus and Mark von Schlegell, Andrew Berardini, Roberta Smith, Tessa Laird, Will Bradley, Joel Mesler, and Robert Leonard. He emerged the radically elegant punk, whip-crack smart and charming as hell . . . The hilarious honesty and sharp intelligence of Giovanni was to me a breeze, a knife, a wonder. --Andrew Berardini, Everything You Read About Giovanni Intra is True Published by Bouncy Castle and Semiotext(e).

              Walking Through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black: Collected Stories (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Mueller, Cookie; Laing, Olivia; Afterword by Kraus, Chris

              The first collected edition of legendary writer, actress, and adventurer Cookie Mueller's stories, featuring the entire contents of her 1990 book Walking through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black, alongside more than two dozen others, some previously unpublished. Legendary as a...n underground actress, female adventurer, and East Village raconteur, Cookie Mueller's first calling was to the written word- "I started writing when I was six and have never stopped completely," she once confessed. Muelleris 1990 Walking through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black, the first volume of the Semiotext(e) Native Agents series, was the largest collection of stories she compiled during her life. But it presented only a slice of Mueller's prolific work as a writer. This new, landmark volume collects all of Mueller's stories- from the original contents of Clear Water, to additional stories discovered by Amy Scholder for the posthumous anthology Ask Dr. Mueller, to selections from Mueller's art and advice columns for Details and the East Village Eye, to still "new" stories collected and published here for the first time. Olivia Laing's new introduction situates Mueller's writing within the context of her life-and our times. Thanks to recent documentaries like Mallory Curley's A Cookie Mueller Encyclopedia and Chloe Griffin's oral biography Edgewise, Mueller's life and work have been discovered by a new generation of readers. Walking through Clear Water in a Pool Painted Black- Collected Stories returns essential source material to these readers, the archive of Mueller's writing itself. Mueller's many mise en sc nes-the Baltimore of John Waters, post-Stonewall Provincetown, avant-garde Italy, 1980s New York, an America enduring Reagan and AIDS-patches together a singular personal history and a primer for others. As Laing writes in her introduction, Collected Stories amounts to "a how-to manual for a life ricocheting joyously off the rails . . . a live corrective to conformity, conser
