Synopsis

Amanda Palmer rose to indie rock fame as the front woman for The Dresden Dolls, and continues to thrive as a solo act. In "On the Many Deaths of Amanda Palmer" Kriwaczek builds on Amanda's playfully gothic image by centering the book around her imagined death, taking us once again into a strange alternative reality of his own imagining. Upon hearing rumours that Amanda Palmer had died, her fans began posting their own writing, artwork, and thoughts onto the Internet, eventually creating their own genre called the 'Palmeresque'. By collecting a selection of these submissions in one place and providing his own commentary, Kriwaczeck explores issues of authorship, celebrity, popular culture, marketing strategies and the corruption of art. Amanda's fans will of course enjoy this outrageous depiction of their favorite songstress, and this book also appeals to anyone interested in the essential questions of modern media.
