"Perfect Wives, Other Women is a remarkable and brilliant work. Ample in scope, lucidly and vividly argued, it traces the taut histories that link the figure of the wife with the languages and institutions of inquisition in the literary, legal, and religious cultures of early modern Spain. It is indispensable reading not just for students of Spain's Golden Age, but also for those interested in the articulation of institutional cultures and the somatic imaginary in early modern European culture more broadly."- Jacques Lezra, University of Wisconsin, Madison "Perfect Wives, Other Women is a theoretically informed and elegantly conceived study that combines sharp focus and broad scope. A superb work."- James D. Fernandez, author of Apology to Apostrophe: Autobiography and the Rhetoric of Self-Representation in Spain
