About the Book

In Lesbian Utopics, Annamarie Jagose surveys the construction of the lesbian and finds her in a cultural space that is both everywhere and, of all places, nowhere. The "lesbian", in other words, is symbolically central, yet culturally marginal.

Reviews

"A brave and rigorous book that makes the complex theory and politics of lesbian textual practice speak out. Its thoughtful and intriguing analysis of several tropes central to lesbian and gay studies makes it an indispensable part of the generation of books following Judith Butler's. Incorporating a wide variety of critical discourses from feminist theory to psychoanalysis and philosophy, this book demonstrates and extends the depth of the field of lesbian studies." -- Judith Roof
