Reviews

These new writings - feminist, deconstructive, and Lacanian, for the most part - have a wild playfulness and a sort of sexual sparkle that...give them an extraordinary verve...The sex-playful explications of Gallop, Moi, Hertz, et al...carry an unmistakable transferential weight. -- Janet Malcolm The New Yorker
