Editorial Reviews


"This book offers a refreshing revision of modernist aesthetics, premised upon a 'cult of ugliness.' [Higgins] renews attention to the politics of reading modernisms, and indeed deploys and admirable model of feminist reading both along and against the grain." -- Bonnie Kime Scott, San Diego State University
