About this book

Queer Writing provides the first full-length study of homoeroticism in Jean Genet's fiction. It shows how the theory of writing elaborated in his work provides a new way to understand homosexual literature, not as the inscription of a stable sexual subjectivity but as the mobilization of a perverse dynamic within the text.
