Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This is a groundbreaking work of poetry, autobiography, lesbian studies, multicultural writing, feminist philosophy, and postmodernism. Jeffner Allen achieves a crossing of borders and complex worlds often heralded in feminist theory but rarely attempted.

These abundance writings are intimate chattings that celebrate collisions transitions unexpected that welcome fluidity a breathing that traverse deaths and lives How to love where there may be nothing in common or this today and (not) that tomorrow?
"This book is brilliantly, shimmeringly written. I like the skillful play of language, the shapes of the words on the page conveying multiple meanings, the reliance on the music of language, the shifting positionalities of the subject in different sections, and the mirroring of languages. I find Jeffner Allen's play of language thrilling and always mind expanding. The book is utterly delicious to read." — Rosemary Keefe Curb

"Here, Jeffner gives her readers a world of extreme complexity filled with play, horror, sorrow, and insight. She shows everyday life anew, in its possibilities, across enormous distances of territory, culture, class. Jeffner has developed a way of telling that surmounts the walls between conceptually different worlds.

I think one of the important things Jeffner does in her philosophical poetry is to express the multiplicity of each woman and then the fluidity between women, a fluidity made of difference in and between women. This is a beautiful, highly readable book. I loved it." — María Lugones, Carleton College

"Throughout the book there is a weaving of the real, material violence women face constantly, together with a profound vision and love of women that crosses boundaries and interacts. This work comes alive for me because it shows me ways to face the horrors while at the same time helping me to find ways to stay open to the love. It nourishes my imagination and my memory, both philosophical and aesthetic. Outstanding." — Sarah Lucia Hoagland, Northeastern Illinois University

Jeffner Allen is the author of Lesbian Philosophy: Explorations; editor of Lesbian Philosophies and Cultures, published by SUNY Press; and co-editor of The Thinking Muse: Feminism and Recent French Thought. She is Professor of Philosophy at State University of New York at Binghamton.
