Through the challenging lens of postmodern thought, this exciting new collection of thoughtful and imaginative essays focuses on a wide range of life histories, stretching from the unexpected domains of science and religion to the cultural work of nineteenth-century Plains Indians and turn-of-the-century U.S. immigrant autobiographies, from British Romantic autobiography to contemporary self-fictions staged through ideas of the body and visual memory. Definitely required reading.--Kathleen Woodward, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee
A valuable, critical text. It will be very popular among genre theorists, feminists, and scholars of autobiography who have an interest in or adhere to the principles of poststructuralist thought -- certainly one of the most important academic readerships of the decade.--Marlene Kadar, editor of Essays on Life Writing: From Genre to Critical Practice
