Reviews

"Highly recommended."--E. Pappas"Choice" (12/01/2018)
"Part history and part ethnography, Lyndon K. Gill's Erotic Islands offers an innovative approach to nascent and long-established fields such as black diaspora studies and anthropology, correspondingly. Scholars of Caribbean studies or queer studies will likewise benefit from Erotic Islands."-- (12/13/2018)
"Reading Erotic Islands is a sensual exercise. The chapters, organized based on the senses, visual, aural and tactile engagement in art and activism, are punctuated by excerpts from Gill's field diaries, also rich with sensory descriptions. . . . The text successfully engages the reader on multiple levels. Erotic Islands provides rich and provocative explorations of same-sex desire and instructions for applying the erotic lens, while making invaluable contribution to deeper understandings of the queer Caribbean."-- (12/01/2019)
