Plot
"Bisexuality is about three centuries overdue . . . nevertheless, here it is: a learned, witty study of how our curious culture has managed to get everything wrong about sex."
-Gore Vidal
"A marvelous, witty, learned, and sexy book. Bisexuality is destined for landmark status--no one who reads its bold, persuasive argument will ever think the same way about sex."
-Diane Middlebrook, author of Anne Sexton
"Bisexuality uncovers a subject long buried deep within the closet of America's cultural unconscious. Garber's capacities as a cultural commentator--delivered here in funny, witty, and sexy prose--are quite dazzling. A tour de force of social criticism, Bisexuality is in itself a cultural event."
-Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
The world is flat. The sun revolves around the earth. Human beings are either heterosexual or homosexual. The first two myths have long been abandoned,but the third has awaited its Columbus or Copernicus. Until now.
In this witty, learned, and scrupulously researched book, Marjorie Garber examines bisexuality and its many modes through a dazzling variety of critical lenses: cultural, literary, and psychological. Bisexuality is a monumental inquiry into what "normal" might mean, and just how difficult it is to make claims about sexuality-someone else's or one's own. Whether you're curious or seriously interested, a lay reader or a student of sexuality or gender, Bisexuality is a book you will have to have.
