"Hall can evoke in her reader’s mind questions about many things including: the limits and potentials of language, the indeterminacy and implications of sexual difference, and the culturally relative, socially constructed and situated nature of science and ethics. But Hall does this without the esoteric, overly-academic tone usually associated with these topics.... After all, it’s a book about fucking, and coming. It’s fun to read."
