Pressestimmen"This is brilliant... and it represents some brilliant critics at their best. These essays illustrate a different and immensely attractive discursive mode.

Sedgwick's own introductory essay is precisely about the restoration of relaxation to the strategies of queer literary and cultural criticism and of queer politics."
