Books are only $5 until performances start at 8:30pm.

Book Description:

KILL MANUAL plunges through a series of bizarre exchanges and extreme situations in an intense examination of schizophrenic desire. The residual effects of pleasure, shame and pursuit of capital pervade the formal contortions through which it tries to elude and dismantle a nightmarish consumption machine of many faces and shapes.

"This disturbing and radical book reveals, among other things, the half-life left in the wake of ubiquitous, data-mined, robotically fabricated internet content. The world ends in exhaustion. Troyan’s piercingly felt, sampled text probes the immateriality of language. Her work is brilliant and brave."
-Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick
