Virus is a heady brew of feminist critique of the art world and extreme body horror. It is a homage to the late Kathy Acker written in coruscating prose from a position of genuine anger at the suppression of women’s work by mansplaining, the taking up of space and actual murderous violence. It is a brilliant debut.
