MEDIA REVIEWS
"What makes "Flaming Classics so refreshing is not so much its innovative angle as its conversational edge. Instead of the autoerotic jargon that all too often excites film critics while leaving their audiences unsatisfied, Doty's intelligent, accessible analyses convert his discourse into a pleasurable intercourse between writers and readers of both academic and pop-culture texts."
-"Rain Taxi
..."peeks into new spaces with a sharp, funny eye to the tornado that continues to rage between marginalized queer cultures and mainstream cinema."
-"Rain Taxi
""Flaming Classics by Alexander Doty turns up the temperature on gay currents in cinema from "Caligari to "Psycho" -"Flaunt."
"This year's many books that probe the sexual nature of film, film stars and filmmakers could stock a mini-library. Part of the entertaining group is "Flaming Classics by Alexander Doty, who argues that "The Wizard of Oz" is a lesbian fantasy -- a notion that many "friends of Dorothy" might passionately debate."
-Publishers Weekly
..."Doty often takes a fresh approach to overexamined works.."
-Library Journal
