Autobiography of a Blue-eyed Devil

My Life and Times in a Racist, Imperialist Society

by Inga Muscio


From the celebrated author of the cult classic, Cunt: A Declaration of Independence comes a searing picture of our history, and the cultural narratives that prevent us from realizing true freedom and community.

In an updated second edition of her widely anticipated follow-up to Cunt, controversial feminist author Inga Muscio asserts that the history we learn in school and that is perpetuated in all areas of life in the US, is, in fact, a marketing brand developed by powerful people to maintain gross inequities. With Autobiography of a Blue-Eyed Devil, it's Muscio's turn to take Americans on a tour through our history, from Columbus to today. Whose country is this? Has democracy ever really existed? With her trademark ability to deconstruct reality and expose truths that allow us to see our culture and ourselves more clearly, Muscio delves deep to answer these fundamental questions. Including chapters such as "God Told Me To Kill You" and "Postage Stamp Redemptions," Muscio offers new perspectives on histories that will shock even the most ardent alternative history buff.

“I have a new mantra: read Inga. Her passion, her courage, and her incisive words on the most pressing issues of our time are a wonder to read and experience.”

Praise for Inga Muscio's previous work: "Beautifully written and incredibly informative, this book is like no other. It made me laugh, cry and really appreciate what I have down there more than anything I've ever read. Not just as an owner's manual, but a love letter to the most valuable thing on the planet. Everyone who was born out of one needs to read Cunt.
