"Obscenity is Finley's subject-not four letter words but the emotion propelling them. Her monologues expose unspeakable acts and unforgivable feelings, deconstructing relationships into the most primal urges."
C. Carr, The Village Voice
"Karen Finley is one of the most relentlessly independent and visceral performances artists of her generation."
Los Angeles Times
"In a decade when most artists- painters, writers, performance people- have freely elected to make their work in order to gross money and court popularity, Finley has chosen: Not only to criticize this society defined by fear, or greed (the other side of fear). But also to explore that which is most dangerous for women to explore: our own sexualities which in our public history men have used to define us and so to attempt to control us. Finley is a courageous and charismatic performer, writer, and explorer."
