Editorial Reviews


"[a] sprawling work of crypto-impressionistic fiction that purposefully elides individual authorship for a sort of rarefied mechanical groupthink." Christopher Bollen Artforum

About the Author

The artist-collective Bernadette Corporation was founded in a night club in 1994. In the beginning the group organized spontaneous, purposeless events in public space. In 1995 they morphed into a fashion label, then a self-publishing company that from 1999 to 2001 published an art magazine called Made in USA. Bernadette Corporation has also produced films, including Hell Frozen Over (2000), and Get Rid of Yourself (2003), as well as exhibits at art galleries and museums throughout the world.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By S. Peacock on January 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
Though in some ways it's more of an art piece than a novel, I couldn't help but notice the above reviewer rather missed the point of the whole project, and the short piece smacked of the kind of philistinism one sees often witnesses in relationship with contemporary art. "I don't get it, it must be bad" (Insert sound of palm slapping on forehead.) But Reena Spauling's created by collective the Bernedette Corporation, mixes the mania of late capitalism with the derive, wry wit of the intellectual in crafting a piece of writing that's stranger and more delightful than all of the shoddy realist fiction of the last few years combined.

5 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Bethany A. Whalen on August 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
The concept behind the novel was to have a collaborative authorship (and with perhaps an implied metaphor for nyc), this is about the only thing I found interesting about the book.

It intentionally shifts between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person without much reasoning behind it. The plot is superficial, viceral, chaotic, and pointless.

Don't buy it and don't waste your time reading it.
