'Sad Sack' is a book of collected writing by Sophia Al-Maria, taking feminist inspiration from Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1986 essay ‘The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction’; opposing ‘the linear, progressive, Time’s-(killing)-arrow mode of the Techno-Heroic. Encompassing more than a decade of work, 'Sad Sack' tracks Al-Maria’s 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.
