Editorial Reviews

''...Homecoming Queens offers a positive contribution to not only the field of English and American literary criticism, but also queer studies. By challenging the urban centredness of gay academic work, Dines joins a handful of other scholars who are steering a new direction through the spatialized literature on human sexuality.'' - Brent Pilkey, University College London, Gender, Place and Culture
