Description

For the reader of contemporary literature, The Aerial Letter is a contribution of major significance. Combining twelve pieces developed since the mid-Seventies, it challenges feminist cultural experience and imagination. Brossard's reflections on writing and the emergence and survival of lesbian identity are hard hitting and incisive.

Editorial Review

"A friend said to me with considerable fervour that she had read The Aerial Letter and had loved it. Such a strong emotional response to a book of theory may seem strange, and yet I too have read and loved these texts. Their extraordinary texture and the zany peregrinations of the words have brought me pleasure, insight and joy; they offered me warm complicity."— “Louise H. Forsyth, Professor, Department of Women's and Gender Studies, University of Saskatchewan
