Review

“An extremely honest and provocative book. Judith Halberstam’s In A Queer Time and Place both validates and admires the beauty of the transperson as well as the genderqueer in this new era of identity performance. It is an incredible portrayal of the partnership between trans issues and gay and lesbian issues that I applaud with a full heart.”
-JD Samson,from the band Le Tigre



“Halberstam’s marvelous new book combines fierce argumentation, vivid description, astute as well as hilarious commentary. The author not only provides a powerful critique of common defenses and dismissals of 'postmodernism,' but offers a redefinition of ‘identity politics’ for the new millennium as well.“
-Lisa Duggan,author of Twilight of Equality: Neoliberalism, Cultural Politics, and the Attack on Democracy



“This small seductive book pours warmth as Halberstam confesses and connects movements of pop culture and high art to a deeper understanding of the potentials of the body. She includes us in her world and its privileged understanding of her subject....In a Queer Time displays Halberstam’s sophisticated understanding of contemporary culture in a plain and engaging tone.”
-Pop Matters



“Halberstam’s text is academically important, critiquing identity politics and examining uncommon but essential transgender representations in art, film, and society.”
-The Bloomsbury Review



“The wide-ranging scope of (Halberstam’s) work both serves to make her book accessible to many kinds of readers as well as to show the wide scope in which her argument registers. This makes her book a joy to read. Similarly, her wit and ability to capture large theoretical terms in rich and layered (and funny!) images contributes to the pleasure of this book of ‘theory’.”
-The Cream City Review
