MEDIA REVIEWS

'Rejecting oversimplified accounts of her metamorphosis from spinster to singleton, this original book astutely assesses paradoxical cultural discourses wherein the single woman is sometimes approvingly evaluated for her exemplary conduct as a neoliberal subject yet often anxiously positioned as a challenge to heternormativity in a 'couple culture' that strenuously resists self examination.' - Diane Negra, University College Dublin, Ireland

'Single Women in Popular Culture is an exemplary, groundbreaking work within the field of feminist media and cultural studies. It employs feminist cultural criticism critically to address major questions related to the hyper-visible positioning of heterosexual women's singleness within the terrain of popular culture.' - European Journal of Women's Studies
