In The Book of Me, Christine Wertheim continues her feral dismantling of text and image as she creates what Donna Haraway has described as “multispecies poetry, a tuning fork for the indexical and iconic in language and politics.” Also included is a cultural-poetic manifesto that situates Wertheim’s work within a critique of capitalist lyric.
Christine Wertheim’s books include two poetic suits, mUtter-bAbel (Counterpath), and +|’me’S-pace (Les Figues Press), three edited literary anthologies Feminaissance, The n/Oulipean Analects, and Séance, the last two with Matias Viegener, and Crochet Coral Reef, with Margaret Wertheim, about their decade-long art-science-feminist-community project with the Institute For Figuring. She has received grants from the Annenberg and Orphiflamme Foundations, and teaches at the California Institute of the Arts.
