Reading from Behind: A Cultural Analysis of the Anus

Jonathan A. Allan

University of Regina Press

THE FIRST volume in URP’s Exquisite Corpse series, which features books focused on aspects of the human body not usually explored in literature, is an examination of the cultural impact of the anus – “the rear, the posterior, the behind, the bottom” – in theory, art, and society. Author Jonathan A. Allan, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Queer Theory at Brandon University, does not stint on the academic language – the reader needs a high tolerance for the use of the word “imaginary” as a noun – but does provide interesting revisionist readings of Brokeback Mountain and Gore Vidal’s Myra Breckenridge. $34.95 cloth 978-0-88977-384-4, 288 pp., March
