"Allen's work is virtually unique among American writers. It illustrates a deep knowledge of the issues raised by the postmodernists, yet she does not succumb to the playing field, constructing instead her own philosophical direction and aesthetic." -Sarah Hoagland

Jeffner Allen shapes a poetic politics that transforms textual and everyday realities. The surprising, resilient, and transformative windings of lesbian writing and lesbian lives-a poetics of sinuous movement, the turning of women to women-informs these reflections.

JEFFNER ALLEN is Professor of Philosophy and Women's Studies at the State University of New York at Binghamton and author of reverberations across the shimmering CASCADAS.
