Editorial Reviews

Review

Fictions of the Bad Life takes the peripheral, vernacular, and even “schmaltzy” prostitute and places her on the center stage of cultural analysis. Claire Thora Solomon asks how and what it means to read differently. Through her methodical, theoretically sophisticated act of reading, the prostitute has reemerged from her life imprisonment as the new ‘subject of history.’ Solomon’s book is not only timely, but highly relevant, filling a lacuna in the literature, theater and history.” —Ruth Tsoffar, Comparative Literature and Women’s Studies, University of Michigan
