As noted in a previous post, I am trying to read as much queer theory as possible this summer. I bought these books (all from amazon.com’s network of independent booksellers) to further this end. I am especially interested to read La Fountain-Stokes’s book about the queer Puerto Rican diaspora because it is a group that includes myself. I’ve also heard lots of good things about José Esteban Muñoz’s work, but have never actually read any of it yet, so I’m looking forward to doing so soon.
