About the Author
--Clare Croft, University of Michigan
"Makes a passionate case for drag dance as so much more than a surface-level donning of another identity... the book presents drag dance as a rigorous practice of generosity and discipline, of historiography and politics, of mourning and imagining alternative futures, and, ultimately, of queer kinship. In captivating prose that is often playful and poignant, Schwartz compels us to approach drag dancers themselves as serious theorists of gender, embodiment, and temporality."
--Anthea Kraut, University of California, Riverside
"Schwartz offers a comprehensive and captivating analysis of the social, temporal, and historical functions of drag, countering hegemonic, cisgender, heterosexual histories of dance, embodiment, and performance. ... This important book will appeal to readers and researchers interested in queer theory, temporality, embodiment, and performance. Recommended."
