'Rather than a single, overarching account of ORLAN's oeuvre, what this book valuably provides is a range of texts exploring overlapping ideas, myriad mouthpieces returning to and unpacking certain qualities of ORLAN's practice in distinctly different ways, suturing and dissecting these into fascinatingly autonomous analyses. For me, quite purposefully, the undisciplined collection of texts in this rigorous and exciting volume morphs in a multitude of ways, much like the artist's own marvellously monstrous practice.' - Rachel Zerihan, Contemporary Theatre Review
