'Sad Sack' is a book of collected writing by Sophia Al-Maria, taking feminist inspiration from Ursula K. Le Guins 1986 essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction; opposing the linear, progressive, Times-(killing)-arrow mode of the Techno-Heroic. Encompassing more than a decade of work, 'Sad Sack' tracks Al-Marias speculative journey as a writer, from the first seed of her ""premature"" memoir, through the coining and subsequent critique of Gulf Futurism, towards experiments in gathering, containing, welling up, and sucking dry. Sophia Al-Maria is an artist and writer living in London.
