"Both a remarkable feat of conscientious scholarship and a pleasure to read, Looking Like What You Are will prove of great interest to scholars of gender, race/ethnicity, class, and sexuality alike."
-Renée C. Hoogland,University of Nijmegan
"One of the great virtues of Lisa Walker's Looking Like What You Are is the ease with which she is able to personalize theoretical discourses. After being drawn in by her narrative style and her engaging use of anecdote, the reader will discover an elegantly written, thoroughly substantiated, and deeply convincing argument about the role of visibility in twentieth-century identity politics."
-Bonnie Zimmerman,San Diego State University
"Subtle, lucid, and stylish, Walker's book offers a provocative and challenging model for living and writing in ‘sustained contradiction.'"
-Elizabeth Meese,University of Alabama
