Queer Commodities : Contemporary US Fiction, Consumer Capitalism, and Gay and Lesbian Subcultures Hardback
by G. Davidson
Part of the American Literature Readings in the 21st Century series
Queer Commoditiesis the first book-length analysis of same-sexuality and consumer capitalism in contemporary US fiction.
Moving beyond the critical tendencies to identify gay and lesbian subcultures as either hopelessly immersed in consumer capitalism or heroically resistant to it, Guy Davidson argues that while these subcultures are necessarily commodified, they also provide means of subversively negotiating aspects of life under capitalism.
