`a highly intelligent, up-to-date, well-informed study ... Wilson skilfully moves through the writings of several theorists, paying homage or disagreeing ... she is always resourceful, and often insightful, in her interpretations. Her readings are astute on all four writers.'

`Sexuality and the Reading Encounter is a highly intelligent, up-to-date, well-informed study ... Wilson skilfully moves through the writings of several theorists, paying homage or disagreeing ... she is resourceful, and often insightful, in her interpretations.'
Times Literary Supplement
`Wilson's use of Butler's rereading of Lacan to describe the formative and yet not normative power of certain fictions over their readers is thoroughly convincing. Her prose style in rich and precise. ... The book is impeccably researched and written with evidently painstaking care. It should significantly advance debate about the intertwining of reading, desire, and identity in French fiction since modernism, and should be on the reading lists of all
undergraduates following courses that include the texts and authors on which it focuses.'
MLR, 92.3, 1997
