- About this book
Martin Dines explores the relationship between the physical and metaphorical spaces of suburbia and the evolution of modern gay identities across a range of British and American film and fiction, looking at the work of Dennis Cooper, Quentin Crisp, Todd Haynes, Christopher Isherwood, Kevin Killian, David Leavitt, Oscar Moore and Edmund White.
- About the authors
MARTIN DINES is Lecturer in Suburban and Cultural Studies at Kingston University, UK. His research interests lie in the relationships between identity, place and narrative in British and American literature and culture.
'...Homecoming Queens offers a positive contribution to not only the field of English and American literary criticism, but also queer studies. By challenging the urban centredness of gay academic work, Dines joins a handful of other scholars who are steering a new direction through the spatialized literature on human sexuality.' - Brent Pilkey, University College London, Gender, Place and Culture
