Description - The Gun is Loaded by Lydia Lunch

Infused with her apocalyptic vision of American spiritual collapse and the violence of sexuality, Lunch's uncompromising work has defied categorisation and been largely under-represented in mainstream media. "The Gun is Loaded" fills this gap, narrating her evolution from No Wave singer and performer, through art-house actor, to spoken word poet and celebrated author. Featuring prose, poems, lyrics and narrative alongside her own recent photography projects and a visually stunning collection of archive material, "The Gun is Loaded" is a provocative journey into the vision of one of America's most fearless and pioneering daughters.

Buy The Gun is Loaded by Lydia Lunch from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
