MEDIA REVIEWS

"Queer Japanese is a treasure trove of information about the language practices-and language attitudes-of sexual minority speakers of Japanese, an understudied group of speakers, who are critically important to a realistic understanding of the gendered qualities of Japanese ... it is a book to which we will return again and again for its wealth of information and its enticing look at a world of "gendered" Japanese that has yet to be fully explored." (Janet S. Shibamoto-Smith, The Journal of Asian Studies, Vol. 72 (2), May, 2013)
