Queer Commoditiesis the first book-length analysis of same-sexuality and consumer capitalism in contemporary US fiction. Moving beyond the critical tendencies to identify gay and lesbian subcultures as either hopelessly immersed in consumer capitalism or heroically resistant to it, Guy Davidson argues that while these subcultures are necessarily commodified, they also provide means of subversively negotiating aspects of life under capitalism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Guy Davidson's Queer Commodities: Contemporary US Fiction, Consumer Capitalism, and Gay and Lesbian Subculture invites readers to re-evaluate literary representations of consumerism in recent fictional renderings of gay and lesbian subculture. ... Davidson's monograph will be of interest to scholars invested in the study of contemporary US fiction and consumer culture and recent literary representations of gay and lesbian subculture." (A Year's Work in English Studies, 2015)
