Review quote

"This anthology demonstrates that the field of queer theory has made and continues to make an important contribution to our understanding of sexuality in all its forms.."-William S. Hampl," The Gay and Lesbian Review "Kathryn Bond Stockton's "Eve's Queer Child is one of the richest and rigorous--not to say laugh out loud humorous--essays that I've encountered in all of queer theory.."-William S.

Michael Lucey, University of California, Berkeley.""The power, range, and immense utility of Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's restlessly evolving, always surprising work are put on conspicuous display by the many different kinds of writing brought together in this experimental collection.."-David M. Halperin, W. H. Auden Collegiate Professor of English Language and Literature, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and author of ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF HOMOSEXUALITY and SAINT more
