"As the twentieth century recedes in the rearview mirror, it becomes difficult to convey the impact of past media milestones in shaping the present. Pugh provides an insightful, comprehensive, and nuanced account that will ensure that the importance ofWill & Grace is understood and remembered."--Larry Gross "author of Up from Invisibility: Lesbians, Gay Men, and the Media in America" (5/30/2023 12:00:00 AM)
"Will & Grace is a thorough overview of the cultural tensions inherent in gay representation in the '90s sitcom and in the revival. It is refreshingly open to the possibilities of visual and performative queerness that persist in the series, despite the cultural and generic constraints it faced."--Becca Cragin "Department of Popular Culture, Bowling Green State University" (5/30/2023 12:00:00 AM)
"Pugh persuasively proves that Will & Grace deserves its reputation as a classic sitcom and a milestone for LGBTQ+ representation."-- "Library Journal" (5/30/2023 12:00:00 AM)
The evenhanded analysis balances a love for the sitcom with a clear-eyed assessment of [the series'] shortcomings. The result is an insightful study of queer representation in the early 2000s.-- "Publisher's Weekly" (6/22/2023 12:00:00 AM)
