Heroic Desire performs its title--bold, challenging, seductive, and compelling--a vital and exciting addition to the discourse on lesbian identities, their dissolves and perpetual becomings. Sure to incite and inspire."
Lynda Hart, Author of Fatal Women: Lesbian Sexuality and the Mark of Aggression

"Right on the edge of exciting and daring new writing on lesbian representation. Moving beyond post- modernism's rejection of identity politics, Munt draws on a wealth of scholarship and personal reflection to refigure the heroic narrative in the service of lesbian liberation strategies. A thoughtful and thought- provoking book."
Esther Newton , State University of New York, Purchase

"In Heroic Desire Sally Munt revisits identity politics through the figure of the lesbian hero. The result is one of the most exciting works of lesbian theory to appear in years. Written in a strong and engaging personal voice, Heroic Desire will excite, provoke, enlighten, and entertain the reader with this original insights into questions of lesbian identity, culture, and community."
Bonnie Zimmerman, San Diego State University
