"In this groundbreaking volume, Robin and Mark bring together autoethnographic and critical standpoints to examine everyday interpersonal and cultural experiences of identity from the inside out. The authors gently, lovingly, vulnerably, and incisively extend the work of autoethnography and invite us--all of us--to appreciate the ways in which an intersectional approach reveals the relationships among culture, communication, identity, emotions, and everyday lived experience."

--From the Foreword by Carolyn Ellis and Arthur Bochner
