"King Kong Theory" is Despentes' candid account of how she became notorious: reviled and admired in equal measure for her rape-revenge novel turned film, "Baise-Moi", she is the poster girl for modern female rebellion. Powerful, provocative and personal, "King Kong Theory" describes the ways her ideas have been shaped by her experiences of rape, prostitution and working in the porn industry.Feminist theory sheds its fusty image and takes on a punk mentality as Despentes claims that sisterhood explodes our belief in feminine perfection and creates a space for all those who can't or won't obey the rules. Woolf and de Beauvoir are revived and updated by the loudest, most fiercely unapologetic misfit writing in France today.
