Product Description

Review

"This book demonstrates the interrelatedness of several genres and styles of paranoid discourse: detective fiction, autobiography, memoir, case study, film, and novel. The author weaves these sometimes disparate genres into a multifaceted set of readings that offer an intelligent analysis of paranoid narratives."

"I like very much how this book explores the deeper roots of paranoia and how those deeper roots are shown to be complicit in the building of narratives in the modern age--"narratives with not only psychological and sexual implications but gendered implications as well. Paradis's insightful exploration of sexuality and paranoia says much about our own condition in the present moment." -- Todd F. Davis, author of Kurt Vonnegut's Crusade; or, How a Postmodern Harlequin Preached a New Kind
