Description

Focusing on innovative works by Woolf, Baldwin, Kingston and Winterson, the author analyzes how they each represent the self as unique, collectively "other," and inclusively human, and how these conflicting aspects of selfhood interact.

Reviews

"Rusk chooses these ‘hybrid texts’ because of their challenge to readers ‘to work through puzzles in ways that mirror the writers’ own struggles to wrest sense from the contradictions they’ve faced. Thus the books strive to transform how their readers perceive one another and, ultimately, how they act’ (1). . . ." -- Jeanette McVicker, Biography
