Adam Acker, Adam Beach, and Amy Acker
Kraus masterfully navigates Acker’s complex legacy, drawing connections between her work and feminist autofiction as well as acknowledging how her sexuality, violence, and raw emotionality became icons in New York’s downtown scene. Additionally, she draws upon diaries and published texts as evidence of how Acker’s experience informed her formal experimentation.
Early Life and Education
Adam Beach was born in Ashern, Manitoba and raised on the Dog Creek First Nations Reserve by his grandmother and two brothers. Although his childhood was difficult due to the loss of both parents due to alcoholism, Adam found success as an actor appearing in over 60 films and television programs including Clint Eastwood’s Flags of Our Fathers where his performance as Ira Hayes earned him an outstanding performance and led to him earning a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
Adam Acker has served as general manager and producer for various music festivals, as well as directed short films and music videos. Additionally, he performed as drummer in an underground metal band.
He has booked and promoted tours for artists such as Lil Durk, Logic, Wiz Khalifa, Rod Wave, $uicideboy$ and Jazmine Sullivan in his professional career – not to mention major international tours for stars such as Anita Baker.
He is widely recognized for organizing and promoting the Made in America festival.

He is an avid sports fan, playing tennis at Longmeadow High School where he led them to win a state title. Additionally, he is committed to volunteering and has taken part in several service organizations such as Honors Ambassadors, Federal Fellows Program, One Tent Health and Cru.
As a hobby, he enjoys rock climbing, eating delicious food and spending time with family. He currently resides in Bethesda with his partner and their two children.
Acker’s personal life is often at the core of her writing. Her relationships with friends, lovers, and former classmates form the basis for much of her material; this book explores details she never spoke openly about (sexual encounters and struggles with pelvic inflammatory disease), while simultaneously dismantling any mythologies surrounding herself.
Johann Adam Eckhardt was an immigrant ancestor of New York State Palatine lineage who settled in Rhinebeck and other areas of Dutchess County. Following the death of his first wife, he remarried and his descendants from this second union were an early Eckert/Acker presence here in Dutchess County. However, his descent from Johan Adam of Wiesbaden remains unknown at present; more research will reveal more information in due time and this section will be updated as more becomes known.
