Fan Mail, Frank Letters and Crank Calls - Cookie Mueller

Hanuman Editions


Fan Mail, Frank Letters and Crank Calls by Cookie Mueller / tiny (!) 96-page paperback with jacket, 3 x 4.2 inches, reprint from the revived Hanuman Editions / ISBN 9798989378081

I may also have copies available of the Series Two boxset.


Following the publication of Cookie Mueller’s Garden of Ashes in our first series, we are thrilled to reissue her first contribution to the Hanuman canon: Fan Mail, Frank Letters, and Crank Calls, an epistolary portrait of the absurdity of human connection. Her book also doubles as a shrine to channels of analogue communication between private and public personas that have since metastasized in our climate of microcelebrity ideation. Sexy and hilarious, Mueller’s text embraces the discomfiting nature of desire with empathy and trademark wit.

Cookie Mueller (1949–1989) was an American writer, actress, and advice columnist, best remembered as a regular cast member of some of the director John Waters's groundbreaking films, including Multiple Maniacs, Pink Flamingos, Female Trouble, and Desperate Living. She died from AIDS-related complications in 1989.
