Editorial Reviews


"A useful and intellectually stimulating collection of essays. . . . A wonderful starting point for further explorations of Creolism in the Americas."--Legacy

"Bauer is immensely knowledgeable about the byways of American women writers, and she draws on a wide range of authors, some rarely discussed. . . . Fascinating . . . an intriguing account."--Journal of American Studies

"Demonstrates significant changes in attitudes toward women's sexuality in popular fiction."--Choice

Book Description

"Building her analysis on a foundation of recent historical studies that have argued for the 'sexualization' of American culture during this transitional era, Bauer allows us to see the deliberate strategies women writers brought to this broad cultural development. This is a fascinating study that explores major cultural debates and alerts us to quirky, illuminating texts."--Nancy Bentley, University of Pennsylvania
