Rikki Ducornet (born Erica DeGre, April 19, 1943 in Canton, New York) is an American postmodernist, writer, poet, and artist.
"A bold, Rabelaisian mixture of bawdy and horror, this first novel... is highly recommended." -- Library Journal "A highly disciplined extravaganza... The writing is highly impressive." -- Times Literary Supplement "This is the most brilliant first novel I have read in years... Rikki Ducornet's real talent is for language. She is a minor lord or lady of it, achieving abstruse comic effects by a kind of clowning classicism. The Stain is a very odd, accomplished and memorable novel by any standards." -- Robert Nye, The Guardian
