Otherwise: Queer Scholarship Into Song
in The New York Times
Read the review of Kay Turner's musical revue/ book party featuring the unconventional transformation of recently released queer scholarly works into original songs -- in which "lessons are otherwise learned and you go home humming an academic tome!!" Featuring not only my book but many other recent releases, including Lisa Cohen's All We Know, Carolyn Dinshaw's How Soon is Now?, Barbara Browning's I'm Trying to Reach You, forthcoming books by Ann Pellegrini and Tavia N'yongo, and many more -- including Kay's own Transgressive Tales: Queering the Grimms, which gives you the queer fairy tales you always wanted.
