ANDERSON, Laurie. New York: HarperCollins. 1994.

8 1/2 x 11 inches. Signed on half title. pp. [7], 8-288. Heavily illustrated in black and white and color. Good cond.: light exterior wear including edgewear, some rubbing and impressions.

A "roughly chronological" account of Anderson's performances and projects over a twenty-year period. "This book is not an autobiography. It's a collection of the various voices I've used to speak for me...What I mean by 'nerve bible' is, of course, the body. This book is my way of looking for something, of frisking myself, like looking for keys. Parts of the body appear and reappear throughout the book, adding up to a kind of self-portrait, although not a very naturalistic one."
