"With text and more than three hundred illustrations, author RoseLee Goldberg explores every aspect of Anderson's work of the past three decades, illuminating Anderson's creative process; her enduring interests in storytelling and in technology; her collaborations with such avant-garde figures as author William Burroughs, monologist Spalding Gray, and rock star Lou Reed; the social and political contexts that have shaped her art; and the critical and popular response it has received.
In addition to surveying Anderson's work chronologically, Goldberg devotes special sections of the book to Anderson's inventions and body instruments, such as her Headlight Glasses and Screen Dress; her stage sets; her many violins, including the Tape Bow Violin and the Viophonograph; her scores; and her videos. The lyrics to many of Anderson's songs are included, as are lengthy excerpts from many of her performances, stories, and other writings."--BOOK JACKET.
