Book News Annotation:
Chapters focus on specific literary or cinematographic texts, such as The Color Purple, Basic Instinct, Bitter Moon, and The Bell Jar, in order to critically investigate the theoretical as well as political potential of a distinctly lesbian mode of cultural analysis and social critique. The author also sheds light on the side-show of popular "lesbian" figures and images that has gradually been emerging along with the stream of critical discourse on the subject of lesbianism.
