Reading The L Word: Outing Contemporary Television

by Kim Akass & Janet McCabe (editors) - £11.99  I B Tauris (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781845111793 | ISBN 10: 1845111796

The L Word captured international attention when it first appeared on American screens in January 2004. The groundbreaking primetime drama from Showtime is about a group of lesbian & bisexual friends living & loving in Los Angeles, and challenges traditional notions of relationships, queer life styles, gender identities, race, ethnicity and sex & sexuality.
This is the first book about this television phenomenon. With an introduction by Sarah Warn, the founder of premier lesbian entertainment website, and a foreword by Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, the collection brings together leading academics, feminist critics, scholars and award-winning journalists to discuss The L Word. There is also a complete episode guide as well as a series of interviews with the actors Erin Daniesl, Katherine Moennig, and the writer Guinever Turner. Analytical, often humourous and sometimes provocative, Reading The L Word uncovers what makes this show both so compelling and groundbreaking.
