Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book describes and examines the fear of exposure one faces when creating for cultural consumption. Examining the work of Cixous, Foucault, Irigaray, Spinoza, Hegel, Hakim Bey, Heidegger, Kathy Acker, Derrida, and Kierkegaard, the author finds spaces where fear and anxiety give way to connection and community.

"The book will both inspire further investigation into questions of identity, gender, 'anarchy', and new ways of formulating these questions, especially through the incorporation of narrative. Indeed, this text brings into contact, in a waythat none other that I have read has, the idea of 'fictional'narrative as theoretical method with more 'straightforward' philosophical analyses." -- Bill Martin, DePaul University of Chicago

"The questions that this book raises about the relations between 'popular' culture and 'high' culture, theory and practice, philosophy and fiction, are important to contemporary social theory. Brown's analysis is original and creative. In her loose weave, she strings together philosophy, cultural analysis, and fiction to create a colorful pastiche of contemporary thought." -- Kelly Oliver, University of Texas at Austin

Alison Leigh Brown is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Northern Arizona State University. She is currently at work on a book about deception.
