"Grindstaff is both passionate about his topic and well versed in the queer theory of the past three decades.” —GLQ: A Journal of Lesbian and Gay Studies
“Grindstaff’s book is not only for those interested in learning about the rhetorical construction of gay male identity. Rhetorical Secrets also endeavors to explain how that identity is discursively produced by and among those who both deny and promote homophilia. . . . Rhetorical Secrets is a book that explicates one of the central interests of rhetoric, the formation and maintenance of a public and its subjects, but this explication is unique because it describes this process as a sensual, desire-charged, and desire-producing dynamic.” —Review of Communication
