MEDIA REVIEWS
Embodying Asian/American Sexualities forges a new intellectual frontier for critical race and queer studies. This extraordinary collection boasts an archive unlike any other. A provocative tour of transgender, religion, and refugees, as well as the secret lives of Margaret Cho, Brandon Lee, Indian rubber dildos, and Asian men as 'undesirable geniuses', this anthology illuminates ever-shifting conceptions of gender and sexuality through which Asian/American bodies are read. -- David L. Eng, University of Pennsylvania
Embodying Asian/American Sexualities mobilizes brave theoretical excursions and conceptual travels across and beyond genders, sexualities, and races. Through deftly designed maneuvers between genres (from fiction to history to journalism), and by positing bodily experiences as the frame through which Asian American selfhoods, activisms, and community are enacted, this collection offers much to readers in search of provocative ideas, methods, and theories. -- Martin F. Manalansan IV, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
