THE CHILDLIKE LIFE OF THE BLACK TARANTULA #3. A SECRET DOCUMENT. 1973. TRUE FIRST EDITION.
SF: s.p. (Acker), 1973
21 x 15cm, 24pp (Self cover). This is one part of 6 volumes of The Childlike Life of the Black Tarantula which were self-published and distributed by Kathy Acker prior to the later publication as a single book. In this form the novel was presented in six serialized parts, usually mailed to subscribers, friends, and potentially interested parties. This is a remarkably hard to find item and can be seen as the third publication Acker released. The text is a lesbian love story based on fantasies and stories found in V. Laduc’s Therese and Isabelle a`nd Acker’s own schoolgirl experiences. VG if very slight grubbiness around the wrappers.
