Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover This is brilliant. . . and it represents some brilliant critics at their best. These essays illustrate a different and immensely attractive discursive mode. I know of no work more resonant or anywhere near as generous. Beyond that, it marks Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's first move into reparative criticism--and that is a momentous event. --James R. Kincaid, University of Southern California
