This collection of essays explores the shifting definitions of the terms lesbian and postmodern, the lesbian in contemporary fiction and Hollywood film, and the pitfalls and rewards of the recent lesbian theory.

Elizabeth Meese

As an exploration of the relation between the lesbian, conceived within the context of cutting-edge work on gender theory, and postmodernism, a term also requiring critical scrutiny, these essays generate a rich and complex arena for the study of both terms. This collection offers new work of interest to scholars in feminism, postmodernism, critical and gender theory, gay and lesbian studies, popular culture, and literature.
