Save to active project


Many people have contributed to this project, from reading chapters to helping me think through a range of ideas and possibilities, from providing close editorial scrutiny to sharing enlightening telephone conversations. For their encouragement, good humor, and editorial advice I would like to express my gratitude to my writing group, Susan Bordo, Dana Nelson, Suzanne Pucci, Sue Roberts, and Ellen Rosenman. They were my first guides on this project, and their criticisms, both compassionate and critical, were indispensable. I thank Claire Kahane for an early and crucial response to the project as well as Steve Pile and Dan Smith, who both raised important questions. To Jim Kincaid, who read the whole manuscript in less than two weeks, complete with abundant notes and encouragement, I cannot thank you enough for what I can only describe as heroic feats of friendship.

Thanks to those people who sent me materials and made recommendations along the way: Mardel Blum, Sandy Blum, Bonnie Burman, Janet Eldred, Susan Kessler, Heidi Nast, and Michael Uebel.

Thanks to my two brilliant workaholic graduate students who assisted me with the research, Ann Beebe and Ann Ciasullo. Thanks also to Meredith Jones for her painstaking transcriptions.
