Product description

For over 40 years, Valerie Solanas' biting polemic has delighted and terrified readers. 'SCUM' is an indictment of patriarchal culture, a call to action, a radical feminist vision for a different world. Alternating between satire and seriousness, the book remains as a relevant today as when it was first written. Popular and divisive from its first publication, the 'SCUM Manifesto' has proved an enduring classic and has been translated into over a dozen languages. This edition contains a new introduction by American poet Michelle Tea.

Author information

Valerie Solanas: Valerie Solanas was a radical feminist playwright and social propagandist best known as the author of the "SCUM Manifesto," which she self-published and sold on the streets of New York. In 1968, she was arrested after an assassination attempt on the life Andy Warhol, and imprisoned for three years. Deemed a paranoid schizophrenic by the state, once out of jail, Solanas stalked Warhol for several more years, before eventually leaving New York. She died alone and in relative obscurity in 1988 in San Francisco, leaving behind a sheaf of typewritten pages that her mother burned after her death. Solanas was immortalized by actress Lili Taylor in the 1996 film "I Shot Andy Warhol."
