[A] provocative and thoughtful book.
(Christopher Roman Foucault Studies
From the picture on its cover to the pages of her book, Lynne Huffer's study offers us a Foucault many will scarcely recognize. Arguing that virtually from the start of his career Foucault lays new grounds for queer theory, Huffer combines scrupulous scholarship, attentive close reading, and passionate argument with personal meditations to suggest why the early Foucault matters now.
