Reviews

Invite everyone you know to read this smart, sassy party of a book that situates familiar characters in twenty-first-century ideas about gender performativity, the female grotesque, aging precarity, and storytelling.--Sally Chivers"author of The Silvering Screen: Old Age and Disability in Cinema" (02/05/2020)
An enjoyable and informative read about the enduring impact of four incredible women and a sitcom that changed television forever. This book explores how The Golden Girls moved beyond hit sitcom status to become a feminist cultural phenomenon.-- (02/05/2020)
With close readings of key scenes involving each of the main characters, Browne argues persuasively that the 'Girls' function as responses to cultural beliefs about women. This lively study will be of interest to fans and scholars alike.-- (02/05/2020)
