Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Where much of the existing scholarship on Nancy Mairs has approached her essays in the context of disability studies, this book seeks to broaden the conversation through a wider range of critical perspectives and with attention to underrepresented aspects of Mairss oeuvre. With particular attention to the ways Mairs shapes her essays around a variety of “unspeakables”—such as depression, female sexuality and infidelity, mortality and death, or the struggle for faith in a post-modern world—this collection demonstrates Mairss provocative combination of bold ethics and subtle aesthetics.
