Kurzbeschreibung des Verlags:

Cookie Mueller (1949–1989) was a firecracker, a cult figure, a wild child, a
writer, a go-go dancer, a mother and a queer icon. A child of suburban 1950s
Maryland, she made her name first as an actress in the films of John Waters, and
then as an art critic and columnist, a writer of hilarious stories and a maven
of New York’s downtown art world. Edgewise tells the story of Cookie’s life
through an oral history composed of more than 80 interviews with the people who
knew her, including John Waters, Mink Stole, Gary Indiana, Sharon Niesp, Max
Mueller, Linda Yablonsky, Richard Hell, Amos Poe and Raymond Foye. The
contributors take us from the late-1960s artist communes of Baltimore to 1970s
Provincetown and New York, through 1980s Berlin and Positano. Along with the
text, Edgewise includes artwork, unpublished photographs and archival material
and photography by Philip-Lorca diCorcia, David Armstrong, Robert Mapplethorpe,
Peter Hujar and others.
Since her death from AIDS in 1989, Cookie’s work and life have made her an
underground icon. Her original texts, first published by Hanuman Books and
Semiotext(e), have been
reprinted by Serpent’s Tail, and she is remembered for her appearances in the No
Wave films and theater of Amos Poe, Michel Auder, Gary Indiana and others.
Along with the text, Edgewise consists of original artwork, unpublished
photographs and archival material, and photo contributions by Philip-Lorca
DiCorcia, David Armstrong, Robert Mapplethorpe, Peter Hujar and others.
Edgewise is a meditation on memory and story-telling.
