‘Who gets to speak, and why, is the only question,’ writes Chris Kraus in her cult hit novel I Love Dick. First published in 1997, the book is a controversial work of auto-fiction that The Guardian called ‘the most important book about men and women written in the last century’. It has now been adapted for television by Jill Soloway, creator of the hit series Transparent. The ‘real’ Chris joins Krissy Kneen for a fascinating discussion of her provocative body of work - a mirror maze of reflecting and overlapping identities searching for a meaningful life.
